Abstract

Although hemosuccus pancreaticus (HP) rarely causes gastrointestinal bleeding, it should be considered in cases of unexplained gastrointestinal bleeding. We report a case of hemosuccus pancreaticus in a 68-year-old man. The patient has a long-standing history of anemia with a causal relation to drinking alcohol. He consulted 3 medical institutions, but the source of bleeding could not be identified. The patient was admitted to our hospital. After an episode of melena, upper endoscopy was performed and fresh blood was observed to be oozing from the papilla of Vater. Computed tomography image processing using multiplanar volume reformation and angiography revealed pseudoaneurysm of the gastroduodenal artery. The pseudoaneurysm was embolized by transcatheter embolization using steel microcoils.
