PMID:  16222389     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Mycotic hepatic artery aneurysms are rare. This report documents a case in which a mycotic hepatic artery aneurysm was associated with Crohn's disease, renal adenocarcinoma, and a urinary tract infection. Endovascular management of this mycotic hepatic artery aneurysm was successful in the setting of a hostile abdomen based on multiple previous operations, a stoma, and a scarred abdomen.
