Mycotic aneurysms as a result of salmonella arteritis are rare in the era of broad spectrum antibiotics. However, few cases have been reported in cases of immunosuppression, presence of cardiovascular prosthetic materials or intravenous drug addiction. Though Salmonella infections cause aortitis and aortic aneurysms in elderly patients with atherosclerosis, it is rare to have common iliac artery aneurysms in young adults. High index of suspicion and aggressive investigation is required to detect these cases as the clinical presentation may be vague. Management of mycotic aneurysms is challenging, requiring emergency surgery. We hereby present a successful management of salmonella mycotic aneurysm of iliac artery in a young adult with no atherosclerotic risk factors.
