Pancreatitis is one of the common causes of acute abdomen, with vascular complications being most dangerous life-threatening ones. They include formation of vessel thrombosis, erosion of vessel wall and formation of pseudo aneurysm due to release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Pseudoaneurysms most commonly affect the splenic artery, gastro-duodenal, pancreatico-duodenal, gastric and hepatic arteries. Rupture of this pseudo-aneurysms can be fatal due to massive bleeding. Hence prompt diagnosis and treatment of these lesions is necessary to prevent further catastrophe.
