With the widespread use of endovascular surgery, aneurysms can be managed selectively with the use of stent grafts. Standard treatment of mycotic aneurysms usually requires resection and extraanatomic bypass. Although stent graft repair of a mycotic femoral aneurysm with autologous graft has been reported, we present a case of an infrarenal mycotic aneurysm in a patient with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that was successfully treated with a novel endovascular approach.
