CT appearance of mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysms

Abstract

The CT appearance of three cases of infected aortic aneurysms is reported with clinical and pathological correlation. Two of our cases had unique features: the disappearance of aortic calcifications, and an irregular, thickened aortic wall with peripheral enhancement. The nonspecific clinical presentation and high mortality make mycotic aneurysm an important consideration in the differential diagnosis of abnormal soft tissue contiguous with the aorta.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.

Cardiac Aneurysm

Aneurysm refers to a bulge of the wall or lining of a vessel commonly occurring in the blood vessels at the base of the septum or within the aorta. In the heart, it usually arises from a patch of weakened tissue in a ventricular wall, which swells into a bubble filled with blood. Discover the latest research on cardiac aneurysm here.
