An arterial pseudoaneurysm is a cavity which does not consist of three layers of arterial wall and is generally seen at femoral and radial artery sites due to bone fractures, arterial injuries and iatrogenic reasons such as catheterization. The treatment choice may be either surgical or conservative. Patients with pseudoaneurysm should be carefully followed and the treatment choice should be immediately decided to avoid possible complications. We report a case of pseudoaneurysm formation in the radial artery that occurred one week after arterial catheterization for coronary angiography. The treatment choice for this patient was surgical and he was discharged without any complications.
