Percutaneous techniques for the embolization of pseudoaneurysms have been well described. We encountered a mycotic renal artery pseudoaneurysm in a patient who was considered to be a poor surgical candidate. Successful embolization was accomplished by using an occlusion balloon, stainless steel coils, thrombin, and a detachable balloon.
