Non typhoidal Salmonella endovascular infections as mycotic aneurysm have a worsening prognosis when occurring in populations with risk factors.

For the patient, the infection healed with early surgical treatment and prolonged antibiotic therapy. When previously begun, this treatment improves the outcome of these infections.
