Pseudoaneurysm of the internal iliac artery is a rare occurrence. Our patient presented with pain over the lower abdomen which also radiated to the back. An Angiogram of the aorta and the iliac arteries showed a pseudoaneurysm of the right internal iliac artery which measured about 8 x 8 cm with a proximal branch of the internal iliac artery distended. Initial efforts of trying to embolize the pseudoaneurysm revealed that there was a connection between the pseudoaneurysm and the interanal iliac vein where foam was getting dislodged into the venous system. Subsequently, we decided to use a vascular plug which has just been recently being introduced. Post procedure there was no more flow into the right internal iliac artery pseudoaneurysm.
