Abstract: In a 57-year-old male with aortic valve stenosis and severe poststenotic dilation of the ascending aorta an aortic valve replacement and interposition of the dilated aortic segment with a Dacron prosthesis were carried out. Perioperative course was uneventful. Four months after dismission the patient presented with septic fever and recurrent arterial emboli. Histological evaluation of the thrombotic material found fungal masses of Aspergillus flavus. Although adequate antimycotic treatment was started immediat… Show more

“…Definitive diagnostic procedures for these patients generally involve culture of the excised aortic graft or the peripheral embolus, and biopsy of the contiguously affected vertebral disk space [277,281–284]. As with endocarditis, almost all cases have involved immunocompetent males [277,278,281–290]. The median time from the placement of the graft to diagnosis is 8 months, which is a longer period than that for Candida graft infections (usually <6 weeks) [279].…”

“…Mycotic aneurysm is associated with a worse prognosis because of the risk of vessel rupture, usually resulting in fatal bleeding. Similar cases of fungal vegetation on a Dacron prosthesis due to Aspergillus flavus infection have been reported . The diagnosis is usually challenging.…”

“…Fungal infections of vascular grafts are even less frequent [2,[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16]. In fact, invasive aspergillosis is more frequent among immunocompromised individuals receiving chemo-or corticotherapy and AIDS patients.…”
