Abstract

Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is usually a condition of the immunocompromised patients. The organism has a tendency to invade pulmonary blood vessels. Extension of a pulmonary parenchymal lesion to involve the mediastinal great vessels is very rare. This is the first case where the extension of IPA to the aortic arch and the formation of a pseudoaneurysm were demonstrated on serial CT scans.
