Posttraumatic pseudoaneurysms of the hepatic artery are rare and usually occur as a complication of open abdominal trauma. Even less common is the coexisting presence of enteric fistulization. We report a patient with upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage occurring 3 years after blunt abdominal trauma resulting from a pseudoaneurysm of the proper hepatic artery with duodenal fistulization. The patient was treated successfully by ligation of the proper hepatic artery and closure of the duodenal opening.
