  • We report a case of blunt trauma causing both a pseudoaneurysm and an arteriocalyceal fistula. These 2 lesions have not previously been reported occurring simultaneously as a complication of renal trauma. Pathophysiology, clinical presentation, and management options are discussed. Angiography in this case was both diagnostic and therapeutic. Selective and superselective gelfoam embolization led to immediate resolution of both injuries.
