PMID:  582459     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A mycotic aneurysm is an uncommon, but serious, complication of infective endocarditis, occurring as a result of an infected embolus being lodged in the vasa vasorum or lumen of an artery. Involvement of the ulnar artery is rare, but its peripheral location renders its diagnosis more simple. A case of mycotic aneurysm of the ulnar artery complicating infective endocarditis is reported, with successful management by ligation and excision.
