Percutaneous radiologic gastrostomy is a common procedure performed by interventional radiologists for patients needing nutritional support or gastric decompression. Major bleeding is an uncommon complication of the procedure, occurring in lessthan 2% of cases. Bleeding related to a pseudoaneurysm of the superior epigastric artery is a rare entity with a few reportedcases in the literature. A wide range of treatment options are available, but it requires timely diagnosis and intervention to avoid hemorrhagic shock and associated morbidity and mortality.
