Tuberculous mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysm


Biopsy-proven case of tuberculous mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysm in a young male. The relatively characteristic appearance of low-attenuation retroperitoneal adenopathy and intramuscular abscesses can help to suggest TB as the cause. The highly irregular appearance of aneurysm and surrounding soft tissue thickening indicate an inflammatory or infectious/mycotic etiology.
