latrogenic pseudoaneurysms are usually seen following arterial catheterization. However, we describe a case of a 23-year-old woman who developed a pseudoaneurysm of a lumbar artery following renal biopsy. In view of her progressing renal failure, arterial embolization was felt to be inappropriate, and although the pseudoaneurysm could be seen ultrasonically, guided compression could not be applied because of the location of the aneurysm deep to the lumbar musculature. Hence, the pseudoaneurysm was thrombosed by percutaneous ultrasound-guided injection of thrombin directly into the pseudoaneurysm sac. This resulted in immediate thrombosis of the aneurysm and no recurrence on follow-up imaging. Thrombin injection for femoral artery pseudoaneurysms following catheterization is becoming more widely accepted, and our case demonstrates that this technique might be applied to pseudoaneurysms elsewhere in the body.
