Splenic artery pseudoaneurysm rupturing into walled-off pancreatic necrosis and manifesting as hematochezia is very uncommon. We report one such unusual presentation. A 36-year-old man presented with recurrent episodes of hematochezia requiring multiple blood transfusions in 2 months. Upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopy ruled out any source of the bleed. CT angiography revealed pseudoaneurysm from the splenic artery leading onto a walled-off pancreatic necrotic collection; the collection had fistulous communication to the colon. The aneurysm was coil embolized and he was discharged in a clinically stable state.
