Pseudoaneurysm can arise due to various etiologies and patient may presents with symptoms not related with primary location of lesion. This article describes an unusual case of pseudoaneurysm diagnosed on USG. Old aged female patient presented with episodes of altered consciousness. USG study of abdomen revealed huge multilayered lesion in left hypochondrial region with peripheral anechoic region, which showed continuous and regular pulsation on real time study.
