PMID:  12953959     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Salmonella aortic aneurysms occasionally affect adjoining organs. This study reports on 2 elderly men with fatal cases of Salmonella enteritidis involving adjacent organs: aortobronchial fistula from a thoracic aneurysm, and renal involvement from an infrarenal aneurysm. The hope of averting a tragic outcome lies in prompt clinical and radiological recognition followed by effective medical and early surgical interventions.
