A ­case of tuber­cu­lous aor­titis, rup­tured 48 ­years ­after an implan­ta­tion of syn­thetic ­balls ­into the extra­pleural ­space was ­reported. ­Those ­balls ­were ­implanted as a ther­a­peutic alter­na­tive to arti­fi­cial pneu­moth­orax for ­treating pul­mo­nary tuber­cu­losis. ­Free per­fo­ra­tion was trig­gered by debride­ment of an ­expanding ­cold ­abscess. A tuber­cu­lous ­abscess adja­cent to the arte­rial ­wall ­should be care­fully man­aged ­even in the ­absence of the ­blood ­flow by ­image anal­ysis.
