Abstract

It is well-known that the major organisms for mycotic aneurysms are Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella spp but is extremely rare in Streptococcus pneumoniae in postantibiotic era. We demonstrated the first case with multiple mycotic aneurysms simultaneously generated in the splenic and hepatic arteries in a patient with pneumococcal pneumonia.
