Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an uncommon entity with high mortality. Etiologically, they are classified as inflammatory and infective (mycotic), the latter being less common. Clinical presentation, laboratory investigations, and treatment for these may considerably overlap. However, choice of management and the need for surgical intervention depends on factors such as size and progression of aneurysm, persistent symptoms, and presence or absence of distant pathology. Although computed tomography (CT) is the gold standard for AAA, in selected cases, especially in infected AAA, fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-CT can provide valuable information.
