Mycotic aneurysms although rare can be devastating. We encountered a dialysis patient with rapidly expanding distal aortic arch aneurysm who underwent axilloaxillary bypass and thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR). Three months later, he suffered mycotic aneurysm rupture for which redo TEVAR was performed. Antibiotic therapy was discontinued 16 weeks after the second operation, and renal transplantation was performed 6 months later. Dialysis was discontinued in the patient without infection recurrence.
