Pancreaticoduodenal pseudoaneurysm, accounting for only 2% of visceral aneurysms, is a rare but fatal clinical entity. It is a common complication associated with chronic pancreatitis. We here present a case of a 63-year-old Chinese man, who was diagnosed with pancreaticoduodenal pseudoaneurysm by ultrasound and CT. His past medical history was unremarkable, and no obvious cause of the disease could be found. The patient was treated successfully with endovascular embolization using microcoils with no clinical complications.

Key words: Pancreaticoduodenal seudoaneurysm; Ultrasound examination; Coil embolization
