Figure 7 Upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage from pancreatitis related pseudoaneurysm. A: Axial contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) scan, obtained in a patient who presented with hematemesis, shows pancreatic calcifications (long black arrows) indicating chronic pancreatitis and an enhancing mass (black arrows) in the pancreatic tail; B: Coronal CECT shows the rounded enhancing mass (black arrow) with surrounding inflammatory changes. This is suspicious for a pancreatitis-related pseudoaneurysm as the source of the upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage.
