We describe the successful selective coil embolization of an infected superior gluteal pseudoaneurysm secondary to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in a 36-year old women. The patient presented with a long history of drug abuse and perisacral abscesses due to chronic sacroilitis. The chosen strategy provides a safe and successful management of infected false gluteal artery aneurysm.
