Mycotic Aortic Aneurysm Infected by Clostridium septicum — A Case History

Mycotic Aortic Aneurysm Infected by Clostridium septicum — A Case History The authors describe a sixty-seven-year-old hypertensive, diabetic man with a mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysm infected with Clostridium septicum. The patient had colonic polyps but no malignant disease. They could find only one other report of a mycotic aneurysm infected with C. septicum. In that case, as in most other cases of C. septicum bacteremia, the patient had gastrointestinal cancer. Their case suggests that treatment for a clostridial infection should be considered in patients with known gastrointestinal disease, signs and symptoms of sepsis, and abdominal pain. Conversely, patients known to have a C. septi cum infection should be evaluated for gastrointestinal lesions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Angiology SAGE

Mycotic Aortic Aneurysm Infected by Clostridium septicum — A Case History

Abstract

The authors describe a sixty-seven-year-old hypertensive, diabetic man with a mycotic abdominal aortic aneurysm infected with Clostridium septicum. The patient had colonic polyps but no malignant disease. They could find only one other report of a mycotic aneurysm infected with C. septicum. In that case, as in most other cases of C. septicum bacteremia, the patient had gastrointestinal cancer. Their case suggests that treatment for a clostridial infection should be considered in patients with known gastrointestinal disease, signs and symptoms of sepsis, and abdominal pain. Conversely, patients known to have a C. septi cum infection should be evaluated for gastrointestinal lesions.
