INTRODUCTION: Endovascular intervention for mycotic aortic aneurysms is now an alternative treatment option.
CASE REPORT: An 83-year-old male presented with confusion and pyrexia of unknown origin. Acute deterioration and subsequent computed tomography scan of the abdomen revealed a contained rupture of a mycotic aortic aneurysm for which the patient had a successful endovascular repair.
CONCLUSION: Endovascular management of aortic mycotic aneurysms provides an alternate and potentially safer method of intervention, particularly in patients deemed unsuitable for open repair.
