      A case of successful direct percutaneous transhepatic coil embolization of a ruptured intrahepatic aneurysm under computed tomography (CT) guidance is presented. The patient had a history of multiple operations for liver echinococcosis and was transferred to the emergency department in a deteriorating clinical condition due to active hemorrhage. The aneurysm was treated with percutaneous transhepatic embolization under CT guidance. The procedure is not time-consuming and keeps the time interval between diagnosis and treatment to a minimum, thereby limiting subsequent blood loss.
