Tuberculous pancreatitis complicated by ruptured splenic artery pseudoaneurysm. M. Irfan, F. Thiavalappil, J. Nagaraj, T.H. Brown, D. Roberts, L. Mcknight, N.K. Harrison. Tuberculosis involving the pancreas is rare. We report a patient with pancreatic tuberculosis complicated by haemorrhage from a splenic artery pseudoaneurysm. As far as we are aware, the development of a splenic artery pseudoaneurysm in association with a large caseating mass of tuberculous pancreatic lymph nodes has not been reported previously. We review the literature and discuss the varied presentations of tuberculosis involving the pancreas or the pancreatic bed and its draining lymph nodes.
