Hemorrhage is the most frequently encountered post renal biopsy complication; reported in 12% to 14% of patients. Although the vast majority of these are due to renal artery injury, involvement of gonadal arteries is also rarely seen. These may be managed by the endovascular route, which has several limitations in this subset of patients. We report a case of a 69-year-old male with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, who underwent renal biopsy and developed a testicular artery pseudoaneurysm (PA). Successful embolization of this PA was performed under ultrasound guidance using a direct percutaneous approach. This is the first such case reported in the literature.
