Non-aneurysmal infectious aortitis is a rare clinical disease that is lethal when surgical intervention is delayed. Aeromonas species are common pathogens that cause gastrointestinal disorders; however, the extra-intestinal septic syndrome is rare. 1 , 2 Extra-intestinal infections include empyema, meningitis, endocarditis, arthritis, and soft tissue infections. 1234 Herein, we present a case of Aeromonas bacteremic aortitis complicated by a ruptured mycotic aneurysm. A series of computerized tomography images illustrate the complete development of this disease ( Figs. 1 A, B, and C). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first documented case of infectious aortitis caused by Aeromonas sobria bacteremia.
