Pseudoaneurysms of the splanchnic arteries are rare causes of gastrointestinal bleeding. We report a case of a spontaneous gastroduodenal artery false aneurysm ruptured into the duodenum in a patient with hemophilia. The diagnosis was confirmed by spiral computed tomography and magnetic resonance angiography. The patient died from massive gastrointestinal bleeding.
