Splanchnic artery aneurysms are rare vascular lesions with a high risk of rupture regardless of their size. Symptoms may vary from simple abdominal pain or vomiting to morbid conditions like haemorrhagic shock; however, most aneurysms are asymptomatic and difficult to diagnose. In this study, it was aimed to present the case of a 56-year-old female with a ruptured pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm treated by coil embolization.
