A 42-year-old male was admitted with recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding and new-onset jaundice. Computed tomography showed a persistent gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm and dilated intrahepatic and extrahepatic ducts consistent with obstructive jaundice. This patient had two previous coil embolizations, which failed to prevent recurrent bleeding. The patient underwent pancreaticoduodenectomy for definitive treatment of his pseudoaneurysm. We report this case and review the literature.
