A case of multiple peripheral aneurysms in a 4-month-old infant was described. These lesions developed after an episode of pericarditis. Speculations as to the etiology of aneurysms in infants and children are briefly discussed. The aneurysms in the present case are considered as probably mycotic in origin. To our knowledge a similar example at this very early age has not yet been reported in the literature.
