Abstract


Mycotic aneurysm in peripheral limb arteries is a rare entity. However, these can occur as a complication to infective endocarditis. These appear as focal dilatation of the segment of vessel on ultrasonography. “Ying yang sign” on colour Doppler study is seen due to turbulent blood flow within the aneurysm. Magnetic resonance angiography of the dedicated limb gives detail idea about the relevant vasculature.
