Background: Pancreatic pseudoaneurysm (PSA) is a rare, potentially fatal complication of pancreatitis that is commonly associated with a pseudocyst. There is no clear information on the incidence of PSA in children. Surgery and endovascular techniques are the primary treatment options for PSA.
Case Report: We describe the case of a 16-year-old girl with a pancreatic pesudoaneurysm in association with chronic pancreatitis. The diagnosis was made using ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging findings. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully treated by endovascular transcatheter embolization without intra- or post-procedural complications.
Conclusion: Early diagnosis and appropriate management are essential to prevent fatal outcomes because the timing of rupture is unpredictable. Endovascular transcatheter embolization of PSA is an invasive, safe, and effective procedure and should be the first choice in the management of PSA.
