Arteriovenous fistula between common iliac vessels is uncommon. Most of the reported cases are secondary to lumbar disc surgery. Mycotic aneurysm of iliac vessels caused by bacterial infection is even rarer. We describe the case of a 63 year old man with dyspnea, abdominal pain, bipedal edema, chills and fever. He had a right common iliac AVF as a result of a ruptured salmonella mycotic aneurysm, and the diagnosis was made by vascular duplex color scan.
