AbstractAbstract PDF
Mycotic hepatic artery aneurysms (HAAs) have become very rare due to antibiotics. Untreated, they have a high possibility of rupture and mortality. In this paper, on the case of a 67-year-old male who had severe right-upperquadrant abdominal pain and a history of infective endocarditis is reported. The computed tomography (CT) and arterial angiography findings led to a diagnosis of a ruptured mycotic HAA. The CT showed an HAA and the formation of an intrahepatic hematoma caused by aneurysmal rupture. The arterial angiography showed a mycotic HAA that arose from the right posterior hepatic artery. Percutaneous transcatheter arterial embolization was used to successfully treat the HAA. Since then, the patient has been doing well, without symptoms.
