Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Although uncommon, mycotic aneurysms in infants can be lethal because of the high risk of rapid expansion and rupture. Most catheter-associated mycotic aneurysms reported in the first year of life develop following umbilical artery catheterizations. We describe the sonographic detection of an early stage mycotic aneurysm in a 4-month-old following femoral artery catheterization complicated by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) septicemia. We also describe the sonographic and radiographic progression of this mycotic aneurysm before surgery.
