Omental flaps have been used for the treatment of infected aortic prosthetic grafts in adults. We report the case of a 26-month-old male who developed a mycotic aneurysm 9 months following insertion of a ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit. The aneurysm was excised and the reconstructed outflow tract wrapped with omentum. The patient has not had recurrence of his aneurysm following this course of management.
