We describe a case of a 75-year-old man with abdominal aortic and right femoral tuberculous pseudoaneurysms 32 months after intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy for bladder cancer. These aneurysms were probably brought on by systemic infection by Mycobacterium bovis. The infrarenal aorta and right common femoral artery were successfully replaced with an in situ expanded polytetrafluoroethylene graft. Tuberculous pseudoaneurysm after bacillus Calmette-Guerin therapy for malignancy is very rare, and we review the related literature.
