Abstract

A 69-year-old male, after undergoing an exploratory laparotomy, developed Friedlander's pneumonia followed by Klebsiella septicemia which persisted for four months. At the end of this period, a false aneurysm of the aortic arch became apparent. The possible pathogenesis of such an aneurysm developing in the presence of a refractory septicemia is discussed.
