A 57-year-old man presenting with hemoptysis and chest pain was diagnosed to have a Staphylococcus aureus mycotic aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta, which subsequently ruptured into the left lower lobe of the lungs. He underwent successful repair with lung resection and Dacron graft replacement under hypothermic circulatory arrest, followed by long-term antibiotic therapy.
