A case of gastrointestinal hemorrhage, associated with abdominal pain, in an 8-year-old child because of an arterial malformation of duodenum is reported. Selective arteriography showed the presence of an aneurismatic lesion of superior pancreaticoduodenal artery. The leakage of the vascular lesion during examination permitted the embolization by microcoils and cyanoacrylate glue. The follow-up by computed tomography scan revealed a complete occlusion of the lesion.
