抄録: We report a rare case of ruptured mycotic thoracic aortic aneurysm that required almost one month for correct diagnosis. A 71-year-old woman who had hemoptysis for several weeks was initially suspected to have lung cancer based on several examinations, including fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography. However, contrast-enhanced computed tomography revealed a ruptured mycotic thoracic aortic aneurysm in the lower lobe of the left lung. She underwent emergency surgery carried out collaboratively by cardiovascular and general thoracic surgeons. En bloc resection of the aneurysm with the left lower lobe and in situ graft replacement of the descending aorta were performed successfully, although left lower lobectomy was difficult due to the insufficient segmentation of the upper and lower lobes and strong adherence of the aneurysm to the left lung. The clinical course was uneventful. The reason for survival for one month was thought to be that the rupture was covered by the lung. Because the resection of the lung is often difficult in cases in which the aneurysmal rupture shows extensive lung invasion, collaboration with cardiovascular and general thoracic surgeons is important.
