Abstract: Salmonella bacteremia can be complicated by mycotic aneurysm with the potential for a catastrophic presentation. Treatment involves prompt surgery with debridement, extraanatomic bypass, and prolonged antibiotic therapy. Any relapse tends to occur within the 1 st year after surgery.We describe a case of Salmonella enteritidis mycotic aneurysm in a 56-year-old man 5 years after the initial presentation, emphasizing the importance of aggressive initial therapy and longterm surveillance. © 2011 The Author(s).
