Hepatic pseudoaneurysms were once relatively uncommon and often associated with hepatic trauma. Currently, the main etiology of pseudoaneurysms is iatrogenic injuries with the increased use of percutaneous procedures and laparoscopic surgery. However, a spontaneous hepatic pseudoaneurysm is very rare. The clinical manifestations can include pain, swelling, thrombosis, bleeding, and rupture. Early detection is critical for the proper treatment, because ruptured pseudoaneurysms have high morbidity and mortality. We present a case of spontaneous pseudoaneurysm in the common hepatic artery that was treated successfully with transarterial coil embolization. (Korean J Med 77:95-98, 2009)
