Splenic artery aneurysms are the most common visceral artery aneurysms, which are usually found incidentally. The most common complication of splenic artery aneurysms is spontaneous rupture into the peritoneal cavity, which leads to acute peritonitis and shock. Less commonly, it may rupture directly into the stomach, small bowel or pancreatic duct and may present with acute gastrointestinal hemorrhage. We report a rare case of the ruptured splenic artery aneurysm, presenting as acute massive hematochezia which was treated with transcatheter embolization.
