Mycotic aneurysm is an arterial dilatation due to vessel damage caused by an infection. It encompasses primary infection of native artery resulting in aneurysm as well as an infection of pre-existing aneurysm. Mycotic aneurysm is a rare complication of salmonellosis and can be fatal if not diagnosed and treated at early stages. Here, we describe a rare case of abdominal aortic aneurysm caused by non- typhoidal Salmonella (Salmonella Enteritidis/Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis) which was successfully managed by a combination of surgical intervention and antibiotic therapy.
