Splenic Artery Pseudoaneurysms (SAP) are very rare. Giant SAPs are those which are more than 5 cm in diameter and are rarer. SAPs are usually caused by pancreatitis, trauma, surgery or other iatrogenic interventions, vasculitis, local infective or inflammatory processes. We report the successful surgical management of a giant SAP of unidentified aetiology. This case report highlights the significance that this entity may present atypically and hence, early recognition and aggressive management may be life saving.
