We report a case of mycotic aneurysm of the ileocolic artery due to Streptococcus bovis endocarditis and acute septicemia complicated by active hemorrhage, that was treated successfully with transcatheter embolization and subsequent intravenous antibiotic treatment. This case suggests that a mycotic aneurysm can be treated successfully by percutaneous embolization in ...

The objective of this study was to define a novel type of mycotic aneurysm of the carotid artery arising after cervical reoperation. We retrospectively analyzed all staphylococcal mycotic aneurysms of the common carotid artery. These aneurysms had developed after reoperative thyroid or parathyroid surgery, including resection of the central lymph ...

BACKGROUND: Aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva (SVA) are uncommon congenital lesions. The clinical presentations vary from asymptomatic to progressive heart failure following rupture of the aneurysm into an adjacent cardiac chamber. Retrograde aortogram is the diagnostic tool of choice preoperatively. Recent studies have demonstrated that the SVA can be ...

Mycotic aneurysms of the thoracic aorta rarely occur in children. We report an unusual case of a mycotic aneurysm of the descending aorta in a 4-year-old boy presenting with respiratory tract infection, which was rapidly complicated by atelectasis of the left lung. The patient's mycotic aortic aneurysm was diagnosed by ...

OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Mycotic aneurysms of the extracranial carotid artery are rare and difficult to diagnose. A search of the world literature published since 1966 reveals at least six cases of mycotic carotid aneurysms due to a Salmonella septicemia. We present an exceptional case of mycotic pseudoaneurysm of the bifurcation ...
Alonso-Bartolomé P - - 2001
We report a case of a mycotic (infected) aneurysm of the popliteal artery due to Salmonella enteritidis. The clinical presentation may be confused with other more common causes of diffuse swollen leg, causing a delay in the diagnosis and proper therapy. Prompt surgical resection of the infected aneurysm together with ...

A 73-year-old man was admitted with invasive aspergillus of the sphenoid sinus. Endoscopic debridement of the sphenoid sinus was complicated by rupture of a mycotic cavernous carotid artery aneurysm with severe epistaxis. The aneurysm was closed emergently by endovascular coil placement. Subsequently, the mycotic aneurysm extended intradurally and caused fatal ...

Mycotic aneurysm secondary to tuberculous infection of the aorta is a rare entity with less than 50 cases having been described in the literature. Clinical presentation is usually a consequence of the aneurysm, including pain, palpable mass, or hypovolemia secondary to leak. Definitive treatment is surgical, with nearly 30 documented ...

Mycotic aneurysms have been associated with many clinical conditions. A tender pulsatile abdominal mass in association with fever, chills, and unrelenting back pain is suggestive of a leaking mycotic aneurysm. However, the extracranial manifestations of Tolosa-Hunt syndrome (THS) may mimic several of these symptoms. We report the case of a ...

We report a case of a ruptured mycotic popliteal artery aneurysm as a consequence of septic embolization from infective endocarditis. The clinical presentation and radiological findings are presented. The popliteal, tibio-peroneal, and the antero-tibial arteries were reconstructed using an in situ bifurcated saphenous vein graft. Follow-up at 24 months disclosed ...

Aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva often remain undiagnosed until they rupture. A 61-year-old man had a huge, heavily calcified unruptured aneurysm, originating from the right sinus of Valsalva, detected incidentally on a chest radiograph taken for the diagnosis of cardiomegaly. Two-dimensional echocardiography revealed pericardial effusion with a huge calcified ...

When Staphylococcus aureus is repeatedly positive in blood cultures even under effective antibiotics therapy (vancomycin, teicoplanin, or rifampin), computed tomography scan and sonography should be performed early to exclude mycotic aneurysm of the deeply seated arteries, especially in patients with abdominal aortic calcification. Before 1990, the most common causative organism ...
Trevelyan J - - 2000
Two cases of Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm with unusual complications are presented.

A fetus with a large supratentorial cyst and cardiomegaly was encountered at 33 weeks of gestation. The cyst appeared as an aneurysmal, fluid-filled structure extending posteriorly with a finger-like appendage. Using color flow mapping, we disclosed rapid in-and-out blood flow with marked turbulence within the cyst. For evaluation of its ...
