Aneurysms of the pancreaticoduodenal artery are rare. Nonoperative management of an iatrogenic superior pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm which ruptured into the duodenal stump of a Billroth II partial gastrectomy, is described here. Based on a literature review, both aetiology and site of rupture of this observation are very uncommon. Super-selective angiography was used for diagnosis and embolisation for definitive treatment.
