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.
