The case report describes a gentleman with renal transplant who presented with pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and mycotic aneurysm of abdominal aorta. The aneurysm was successfully treated with endovascular aneurysm repair. A multidisciplinary approach with renal physicians and infectious diseases unit was necessary to treat TB and maintain immunosuppression. The technique used for deployment of the stent graft in the presence of infection and a transplanted kidney is described. The satisfactory outcome at 5 years follow-up indicates that endovascular option for TB mycotic aneurysm is durable and safe option particularly when major open surgery is associated with significant mortality and morbidity.
