Abstract

We report the first case of aspergillus mycotic aneurysm as a sequel to concomitant prostatic and renal aspergillosis. The patient had undergone left nephrectomy and transurethral resection of prostate for aspergillus infection one year ago. He again presented with LUTS and backache and clinical examination showed visible pulsations in the epigastrium. CT-scan abdomen showed a pseudoaneurysm of the abdominal aorta. The aneurysm was repaired in situ with homografting and omental wrap. However, the patient succumbed to septicemia on the tenth postoperative day. Adjunctive surgery is usually essential as medical management alone has been unsatisfactory. It is imperative that these cases should be followed closely to detect the disease recurrence and complications at the earliest.
