Abstract

Clinically unsuspected pseudoaneurysm formation of the arterial anastomosis in a patient with a renal transplant was initially diagnosed by computed tomography. This rare but serious complication can also be detected by ultrasound or radionuclide flow study, as shown in our patient. An awareness of this lesion and familiarity with its appearance can permit its early detection before exsanguinating hemorrhage occurs.
