Mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysms (MAAAs) are rare, but severe aortic infection and subsequently infected aortic aneurysms can cause a lethal condition. The gold standard for treatment is resection, infected tissue debridement, and graft replacement. Despite meticulous surgical planning, the mortality rate after open surgical repair can reach 40%. Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) is another treatment option because of its simplicity and low invasiveness. We report a case of symptomatic MAAA successfully treated with EVAR and antibiotic therapy. EVAR is valuable for postoperative physical recovery. Here, the endovascular approach was feasible, and an acceptable outcome could be obtained.
