|Abstract:||A 41-years-old male who presents abdominal pain and rectal bleeding with acute anemization. Both the gastroscopy and the colonoscopy dont identify any potential cause of bleeding. The computed tomography (CT) shows a pseudoaneurysm of the splenic artery. Gastrointestinal bleeding was attributed to a hemosuccus pancreaticus secondary to the pseudoaneurysm of the splenic artery. An arteriography was performed to embolize it. Pseudoaneurysm of the splenic artery is a rare cause of gastrointestinal bleeding. Given the risk of a rupture, the treatment is mandatory irrespective of the size or symptoms.|
