Abstract

This is a case report of an unusual vascular graft infection involving an invasive Aspergillus species with associated vertebral osteomyelitis. Successful treatment was obtained by graft incision, extra-anatomic bypass, and prolonged antibiotic therapy. To our knowledge this is the first successful treatment of invasive Aspergillus of an aortic prosthetic graft.
