A 63-year-old man with midthoracic chest pain and hematemesis was brought to our hospital. Whole body computed tomography scanning disclosed a pseudoaneurysm of the thoracic aorta due to invasion of esophageal carcinoma. Three hours after the admission, he became unconscious and lost his pulse suddenly. Cardiac arrest occurred and he died despite vigorous resuscitative effort because of ruptured aortoesophageal pseudoaneurysm.
