We report a case of 65-year-old lady who presented with fever and left flank pain for 35-40 days and was found to have large collection on MRI spine, this was associated with partially thrombosed pseudoaneurysm of left internal iliac artery and deep venous thrombosis of left lower leg vessels which were better appreciated on contrast enhanced CT scan. DVT was managed by inferior vena caval filter as patient could not be anticoagulated and pseudoaneurysm was embolized using coils and glue. Later collection was drained by pigtail catheter placement. Patient responded well and discharged uneventfully.
