A case of multiple aneurysms of the arterial system of the right leg is described. Although cultures were negative, a presumptive diagnosis of mycotic origin was made based on the finding of purulent material at the site, and patient history and signs. The aneurysms and associated perianeurysmal tissue were removed by N-block resection, and the defects were repaired with synthetic vascular grafts. Postoperative antibiotic therapy was prescribed, and the patient made a full recovery.
