Infectious dissecting aortic aneurysm due to Streptococcus
pseudopneumoniae mimicked large vessel vasculitis
This report highlights about an infectious dissecting aortic aneurysm
caused by a rare pathogen, Streptococcus pseudopneumoniae, which had to
be initially diagnosed large vessel vasculitis (LVV). Even with the
availability of FDG-PET, it may be difficult to distinguish between an
infectious aortic aneurysm and LVV.
