Abstract

A 63-year old man was admitted to hospital for the treatment of coincidental infected distal arch and abdominal aortic aneurysms. His haemodynamic state was unstable and uncontrollable because of septic shock. Group A beta-haemolytic Streptococcus pyogenes was the responsible microorganism. An emergent extra-anatomical bypass and complete aneurysm excisions were performed without extracorporeal circulation.
