Infected aneurysms due to Campylobacter fetus subspecies fetus have rarely been reported. Here, we describe the first case of infected aneurysm of bilateral deep femoral arteries due to C. fetus fetus. We successfully treated this case by administration of antibiotics effective for C. fetus fetus and bilateral obturator bypass with complete resection of the infected aneurysms. The aneurysmal wall culture disclosed the presence of C. fetus fetus in a microaerobic atmosphere after the operation. A distinctive culture condition was necessary to detect C. fetus fetus. In the case of infected aneurysms, we should be aware of the possibility of infection with C. fetus fetus, and an appropriate culture for this organism may be needed.
