Extract

In April 1998, a 60-year-old man was admitted to the hospital with productive cough and right upper quadrant abdominal discomfort. About 2 years ago, he presented with persisted diarrhea and abdominal pain. An infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm was evidenced by the CT scan. He underwent a surgical resection of the aneurysm. Bacterial cultures from the excised aorta grew Salmonella enteritidis group O. A diagnosis of mycotic aneurysm was established, and he was treated with IV ampicillin for 6 weeks.
