We describe computed tomographic (CT) findings at the early stage of infected abdominal aortic aneurysm in three patients. Periaortic mass and increased fat density were the characteristic findings of early aortic infection on CT. Similar findings caused by other diseases may be difficult to differentiate by imaging alone, but these findings should be used to trigger close follow-up for patients with suspected infected abdominal aortic aneurysm.
