We present our experience with two cases of salmonella infected aortic aneurysms. The treatment of salmonella infected aortic aneurysms has been associated with a high mortality, primarily due to the rapidity with which the post-infective complications of salmonellosis develop. Early diagnosis, adequate anti-microbial therapy and improved vascular surgical methods have resulted in a better prognosis for salmonella infected aortic aneurysms.
