Abstract

Mycotic aneurysms are infective aneurysms of native aorta. Pathogenesis is by septicaemic seeding of distant site infection to susceptible atherosclerotic aortic wall. Staphylococcus aureus is the most common causative organism in Western countries, whereas non-typhoid Salmonella species are more common in Asian countries. Mycotic aneurysms are usually diagnosed by infective clinical picture, with or without positive blood cultures, imaging techniques and intraoperative findings. Current standard treatment is open surgical repair, while newer modalities such as endovascular repair are being examined. Lack of randomised, controlled trials highlights the requirement of national and international registry for mycotic aneurysms.
