Abstract

Infectious aortitis is uncommon and typically affects elderly immunocompromised men, with a Salmonella or Staphylococcal infection of an atheromatous or aneurysmal aorta. We present a fit young man who developed infectious aortitis with peripheral embolization due to a penicillin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteremia.
