Pancreatitis is associated with a wide variety of complications. Peripancreatic fluid collections and pseudoaneurysms are among the known complications of the disease. Doppler ultrasound is used in the evaluation of peripancreatic fluid collections to avoid misinterpretation of an aneurysm or a pseudoaneurysm as a simple or complex fluid collection. We report a case of recurrent pancreatitis complicated by peripancreatic fluid collection that mimicked a pseudoaneurysm.
