Primary aortic sarcoma is a rare diagnosis that carries a poor prognosis. This case report features a 68-year-old man, treated 4 years earlier with an endovascular aortic aneurysm repair, who presented with fever, low back discomfort, and abdominal pain. Given the concern for an infected endograft, the patient underwent explantation and replacement with a cadaveric aortoiliac cryograft. Ultimately, the pathology returned as an angiosarcoma. Although endovascular aortic aneurysm repair is the gold standard for abdominal aortic aneurysm repair in patients with suitable anatomy, there are trade-offs associated with less invasive approaches compared with open approaches.
