Mycotic cystic artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication of cholecystitis, of which the main treatment has been cholecystectomy plus ligation of the cystic artery. We highlight our experience with successful coil embolisation of this condition without the need for surgical intervention. This is followed by a comprehensive review of the literature regarding management of this unusual condition.
