We studied the pressure effect by measuring the electrical resistivity for a high-quality single crystal of an antiferromagnet CeRh2Si2 with the tetragonal structure. The Néel temperature becomes zero around 1 GPa. An onset of superconductivity appears below 0.5 K in a relatively wide pressure region from 0.97 to 1.20 GPa, while the resistivity zero, which appears below 0.4 K, is found to be located in an extremely narrow region from 1.03 to 1.08 GPa. Correspondingly the A value of the Fermi liquid relation in the electrical resistivity (ρ = ρ0+A T2) becomes maximum around 1 GPa. Superconductivity is realized in a heavy fermion state.
