Abstract

The authors report the case of Streptococcus Bovis Infection of a pseudoaneurysm which developed in the aortotomy suture line five years after aortic valve replacement with a Bjork-Shiley prosthesis. This was an isolated lesion without involvement of the prosthesis or aortic ring and was an operative finding.
