Pseudoaneurysms of the superior gluteal artery are a rare complication of trauma. They can be diagnosed by Doppler ultrasound, computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Angiography, however, is needed for definitive diagnosis. Transcatheter embolisation is now regarded as the treatment of choice. We present a case of superior gluteal artery pseudo-aneurysm following minor blunt trauma. The patient was successfully treated by transcatheter embolisation and aspiration.
