Abstract

Introduction:

is a Gram‐negative coccobacillus belonging to the family . We present a rare case of abdominal aortic aneurysm infected with that was successfully managed using intravenous antibiotics and endovascular aneurysm repair.

Case presentation:

A 74‐year‐old male was admitted with a 1‐week history of feeling generally unwell with worsening abdominal pain radiating through to his back. Inflammatory markers were raised and blood cultures grew biotype 2. A computed topography scan revealed a 50 mm infected abdominal aortic aneurysm. The patient was successfully treated with intravenous antibiotics and endovascular aneurysm repair.

Conclusion:

Whilst endovascular aneurysm repair has been increasingly used to treat aortic aneurysms infected with a variety of pathogens, this is, to our knowledge, the first reported case of an aortic aneurysm infected with being treated by such a technique. Further research is required to establish the long‐term outcomes of patients undergoing endovascular repair of infected aneurysms.
