Despite the worldwide increase in Salmonella infections, a Salmonella infection of an aortic graft is an exceptional event. A Salmonella reinfection manifesting as a fistula between the duodenum and an aortic stump pseudoaneurysm 30 months after prosthetic excision, aortic ligature and extra-anatomic bypass for a Salmonella graft infection is a unique event. This unusual late complication described in this case report developed in 1 of the 5 patients whose Salmonella aortic graft infections have been previously reported. The reinfection causing septic aortitis responded to conventional surgery.
