Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 52-year-old male with acute myeloid leukemia developed pseudoaneurysm of the subclavian artery. Pneumonia due to Xanthomonas maltophilia, which was multi-drug resistant, progressed to a lung abscess even under administration of antibiotics. This lung infection contiguous to the left carotid and subclavian arteries was suggested to have caused the pseudoaneurysm of the subclavian artery. The rupture of the aneurysm by penetration to the trachea amounted to about 1,000 ml of bleeding; fortunately the bleeding ceased spontaneously. Nonetheless, an emergency transcatheter coil embolization prevented re-bleeding. Endovascular treatment should be considered especially for aneurysms which develop in patients with underlying diseases.
