The present study reports a case of the successful surgical repair of a ruptured infra-renal mycotic abdominal aorta with Enterobactor cloacae in a 66-year-old man. During the operative procedure, an extra-anatomic bypass was installed before the laparotomy in order to avoid bacterial contamination. A complete resection of the infected aorta, tapering of the arterial stumps, wrapping of the omentum, and ligation of the aorta and arteries with Teflon tapes was carried out. The patient is alive and well 1 year postsurgery.
