The Teaching Point

Hemosuccus pancreatitis should be considered in the differential list for upper gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with a history of chronic pancreatitis. Contrast opacification of the pancreatic duct and pseudoaneurysm formation in peripancreatic vessels on contrast-enhanced computed tomography imaging or angiography are characteristic imaging findings.

Abstract
Hemosuccus pancreatitis is a rare and potentially fatal cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding characterized by hemorrhage from the ampulla of Vater via the pancreatic duct. In this case, a patient with chronic pancreatitis on a background of chronic alcoholism is found to have a splenic artery pseudoaneurysm that was bleeding into the pancreatic duct. This was identified on contrast-enhanced computed tomography imaging and successfully managed via microcoil embolization.
