Gallium-67 ( 67 Ga) citrate has been used for detecting infection and inflammation ever since its discovery in 1971. At the sites of inflammation, it is taken by leukocytes and bacterial siderophores. It has an affinity to lactoferrin which is released from degranulated neutrophils. To our knowledge, mycotic aneurym detected by 67Ga scan has rarely been reported. We report an interesting case of infected aneurysm of thoracic aorta detected by 67 Ga citrate scan but was indeterminate on the MRI study
