Gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare but life threatening complication of pancreatitis. Diagnosis and management of it remain challenging. Surgical treatment was associated with a high mortality. Percutaneous transarterial embolization of bleeding artery has recently been advocated as a definitive therapy and can be attempted as the initial measure to control bleeding. We herein report a case of chronic pancreatitis presented with ruptured pseudoaneurysm of gastroduodenal artery which was successfully controlled with transarterial embolisation.
