We report a 53-year old male patient with bilateral mycotic pseudoaneurysms
on common femoral arteries.
Introduction: The majority of the CFAAs are rare and usually secondary
to trauma, infection, or iatrogenic injury.
Case Report: A 53-year-old male patient was admitted to another
center on March 15. 2015, especially in the epigastric region, began to
live with chest pain for 1-2 minutes in the effort and at rest. Systemic
physical examination and biochemical examinations, ECG, echocardiographic
examinations were normal and coronary angiography was
performed considering unstable angina pectoris. The coronary angiography
revealed LAD ostial 95%, LCX ostial 80%, RCA was normal.
Xience type drug eluting stents were implanted in LAD and LCX. Three
months later, on physical examination revealed a pulsatile mass in the
right inguinal region and Duplex Doppler examination was performed
in the lower extremities. Duplex Doppler examination demonstrated “to
and fro” flow pattern and characteristic “ying-yang” appearance inside
the lesion adjacent to the common and superficial femoral artery.
Subsequently, the mass was thought to be a pseudoaneurysm, and the
patient underwent 3-D CT angiography of the lower-upper abdominal
and 3-dimensional lower limb leg-thigh. There was a short segmental
