Pseudoaneurysm of peripancreatic vessel is a rare complication of pancreatitis. The splenic artery is the most commonly affected vessels close to the pancreas. Pseudoaneurysm of right gastroepiploic artery is rare. It can rupture into Gastro Intestinal (GI) tract, retroperitoneum, peritoneal cavity, biliopancreatic duct or pseudocyst. Clinical diagnosis of unruptured pseudoaneurysm is rarely possible because there are no specific signs and symptoms. We hereby report a case of pseudoaneurysm of aberrant right gastroepiploic artery in 30-year-old male which presented with history of epigastric pain and lump with episode of haematemesis and malena. Diagnosis was suspected on Doppler Ultrasonography (USG), which was later confirmed by CECT and angiography. Patient was treated by coil embolization. The pain and lump in epigastrium disappeared within five to six days. Patient is symptom free after six months of follow up.
