The authors report a clinical case of a 60-year-old Caucasian man, with two episodes of arterial embolization in the lower limbs. A microscope investigation of the emboli revealed that they originated from fungal aortitis caused by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. A review of aortic infections showed only one similar report of this rare clinical expression of blastomycosis. The authors suggest a routine postoperative search for emboli followed by culture and histopathology.
