    Peripancreatic pseudoaneurysm and splenic infarction are rare but life-threatening complications of chronic pancreatitis. The incidence of pseudoaneurysm in patients who undergo angiography for pancreatitis is about 10%. Clinically, pseudoaneurysm is hard to discover until rupture occurs. The authors have recently experienced a case of intact pseudoaneurysm and splenic infarction in chronic alcoholic pancreatitis. A bolus enhanced CT scan and angiography were essential to confirm these complications of pancreatitis. We managed these complications successfully by distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy.
