Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report a rare case of a tuberculous mycotic aortoiliac pseudoaneurysm treated with an endovascular procedure and follow-up of 36 months. The patient was a white 72-year-old man with pulmonary tuberculosis and a former smoker with hypertension, chronic renal failure, and dyslipidemia. A computed tomographic scan of the abdomen and pelvis revealed a left paravertebral cavity with fluid content and involvement of vertebrae L2-L4. After a surgical repair attempt, the patient was treated with the implant of a bifurcated endoprosthesis. Because it is unlikely that any center has extensive experience in the management of this rare manifestation of the disease, we reviewed the literature for similar cases.
