Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case is presented of a sixty-seven-year-old man in whom Escherichia coli septicemia developed after catheterization, followed by left renal hemorrhage due to an intrarenal mycotic aneurysm. Because of clinical circumstances that prevailed, treatment was nonsurgical consisting of multiple blood transfusions and intravenous antibiotics. The aneurysm healed spontaneously as proved by subsequent renal arteriography.
