Renal artery pseudoaneurysm is a very rare complication after blunt trauma. Congenital anomalies like horseshoe kidney, ectopic kidney, pelvi-ureteric junction obstruction, etc., make it more vulnerable to trauma. We report a case of a 21-year-old male admitted to our hospital 3 days after blunt abdominal trauma with complaints of lower abdominal pain, hematuria, and hypotension. The diagnosis of ectopic right kidney with interlobar laceration was established by ultrasonography. Computed tomography angiography showed interlobar renal artery pseudoaneurysm in ectopic right kidney. Successful superselective endovascular coil embolization of the pseudoaneurysm was performed.
