Vertebral osteomyelitis may occur with mycotic aneurysms or infected aortic grafts. A high index of suspicion for these concurrent processes as well as appropriate preoperative evaluation and interspecialty communication is critical for appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Extraanatomic bypass, wide debridement of necrotic soft tissue and bony structures, and concurrent bony stabilization are important aspects of treatment.
