Invasive pul­mo­nary asper­gil­lo­sis, ­although ­rare in ­the gen­er­al pop­u­la­tion, ­can ­prove to be an impor­tant ­cause of mor­bid­ity ­and mor­tal­ity in immu­nu­sup­pressed ­patients. In ­this ­paper we rep­re­sent a ­case of aor­tic rup­ture ­for a fun­gal inva­sion of ­the aor­ta ­after a pul­mo­nary resec­tion pro­ce­dure. Although a ­few cas­es ­are doc­u­ment­ed in ­the lit­er­a­ture, we ­report ­our expe­ri­ence to ­make ­our col­leagues ­aware of ­this com­pli­ca­tion.
