A 70-year-old woman with fever was admitted to our hospital. She was diagnosed as miliary tuberculosis and treated with antituberculous drugs. After seven weeks of therapy, she developed a sudden sharp upper abdominal pain and shock. Angiography of the celiac artery showed two hepatic artery pseudoaneurysms with extravasation. The hemorrhage was successfully stopped by microcoil embolization. The clinical course suggested that miliary tuberculosis had caused the pseudoaneurysms. Although aneurysms rarely occur as a complication of miliary tuberculosis, they should be diagnosed as early as possible because of the high rate of rupture and associated high mortality rate.
