Abstract

Mycotic axillary aneurysms, not commonly encountered today, are generally the consequence of arterial trauma. A case of an axillary aneurysm secondary to a septic embolus from valvular vegetations in an intravenous drug abuser was studied. The case is reminiscent of those sporadically reported cases of the preantibiotic era.
