Introduction. We report a case of staged endovascular and hybrid treatment of recurrent thoracoabdominal aneurysms (TAAA) in a 55-year-old HIV-positive man. Report. A patient, who had previously been surgically treated for a type III TAAA, presented with recurrent aneurysms. The patient was treated by a combination of endovascular and open surgery. Neither visceral nor spinal ischemia were observed. Conclusion. The hybrid treatment of recurrent TAAA could offer lower mortality and morbidity. Patients with HIV/AIDS treated for aortic aneurysms require close follow-up.
