Aortic arch mycotic aneurysm, an uncommon cause of sepsis, carries a grave prognosis. Clinical presentations as well as laboratory and radiologic examinations may be noncontributory and often misleading. In a patient with a fever of unknown origin, only the radiogallium study could enable an accurate diagnosis and pinpoint the anatomic localization of the mycotic aneurysm as the cause of fever.
