We report a case of an iliac artery aneurysm in a 9-year-old girl due to Staphylococcus aureus infection of an umbilical arterial catheter inserted at birth. After resection-anastomosis of the iliac artery the postoperative course was uneventful and hemodynamic data remain normal at 2 years. A review of the literature indicates that the prognosis of infective aortoiliac aneurysm is poor in children, except when the aneurysm is located solely in the iliac artery. Arterial continuity should be restored as late as possible after infection using a technique consistent with normal growth of the artery in the child.
