Abstract

Pancreatic pseudoaneurysm is a rare but potentially fatal complication in pancreatitis; however, the incidence in children is not well established. Surgery has been the mainstay of treatment; however, we report a case of PSA associated with pancreatitis in a 6-year-old boy, which was successfully managed endovascularly.
