Mycotic aneurysms due to Salmonella are a classical but uncommon complication of Salmonella infections. We report two cases of such aneurysms, the first one having developed two successive aneurysms of the iliac arteries due to Salmonella typhimurium. The literature on Salmonella endarteritis is briefly reviewed. The importance of an aggressive surgical approach of the mycotic aneurysm, with removal of all infected material and extra-anatomic bypass through contaminated tissue is emphasized. The role of antibiotic treatment is also discussed.
