Primary aor­toen­ter­ic fis­tu­la is a ­rare dis­ease ­with a ­fatal out­come ­unless it is diag­nosed accu­rate­ly and treat­ed sur­gi­cal­ly. We ­present an eld­er­ly ­patient ­with pri­mary aor­to­sig­moid fis­tu­la con­firmed by endos­co­py. Descend-ing tho­rac­ic aor­tof­e­mo­ral ­bypass was per­formed and the aor­toi­liac aneu­rysm and sig­moid ­colon ­were ­then resect­ed in con­ti­nu­ity. The ­patient main­tains a ­good qual­ity of ­life 6 ­years ­after the oper­a­tion ­with ­good ­graft paten­cy and no ­sign of ­graft infec­tion.
