The early recognition of Splenic Artery Pseudoaneurysm (SAP) as a complication of acute pancreatitis is imperative to implement urgent treatment and prevent any life-threatening events from rupture or hemorrhages which may occur in 58% of cases. We herein present a case of a 37-years-old female who presented to the emergency department with the complaints of acute abdominal pain. The revised Atlanta Criteria to diagnose acute necrotizing pancreatitis was met and a 1.8-centimeter SAP as a complication of acute pancreatitis was noted on imaging. This case report highlights the importance of having a multidisciplinary management approach to promptly recognize SAP in the clinical presentation of acute pancreatitis.
