We report the unusual case of a pseudoaneurysm of the superior gluteal artery (SGA) as a complication of a bone marrow biopsy. A 75-year-old man presented with pain and swelling of the left buttock 1 month after a bone marrow biopsy of the left iliac crest. The patient was treated by percutaneous ultrasound-guided thrombin injection (UGTI). The procedure was successful without any complication and the patient was discharged at home the same day. Follow-up at 3 months after the procedure confirmed the complete thrombosis of the pseudoaneurysm sac. At the best of our knowledge, UGTI of a pseudoaneurysm of the SGA has never been reported since now in the English literature.

Abstract

We report the unusual case of a pseudoaneurysm of the superior gluteal artery (SGA) as a complication of a bone marrow biopsy. A 75-year-old man presented with pain and swelling of the left buttock 1 month after a bone marrow biopsy of the left iliac crest. The patient was treated by percutaneous ultrasound-guided thrombin injection (UGTI). The procedure was successful without any complication and the patient was discharged at home the same day. Follow-up at 3 months after the procedure confirmed the complete thrombosis of the pseudoaneurysm sac. At the best of our knowledge, UGTI of a pseudoaneurysm of the SGA has never been reported since now in the English literature.
