We report on the successful treatment of a patient with a mycotic aneurysm of the suprarenal aorta. The aorta was resected and reconstructed using an in-situ polytetrafluoroethylene graft with a side arm branch to the left renal artery. The use of polytetrafluoroethylene graft for aortic reconstruction after suprarenal mycotic aneurysm resection has not been previously reported. The etiology, bacteriology, diagnosis, and principles of management of mycotic aneurysms of the suprarenal aorta are discussed.
