Mycotic aneurysm of the aortoiliac region remains a life-threatening condition, especially if an aneurysm has already ruptured by the time of surgery. The mortality is increased further when it is associated with Salmonella infections, especially in the presence of risk factors for atherosclerosis. We report a case of a 50-year-old man who presented with ruptured mycotic aneurysm of the left common iliac artery secondary to infection with Salmonella paratyphi. He underwent emergent endovascular repair of the aneurysm with the “bare stent-graft technique.” Postoperative recovery was eventful. This case demonstrates that it is possible to safely manage mycotic aneurysms by endovascular means, following targeted perioperative antibiotic therapy.
