A 68-year-old male presented with Group B Streptococcus aortic valve (AV) endocarditis with aortic root abscess and refractory sepsis. An emergency cardiac surgery was performed with root abscess drainage, excision and debridement of necrotic tissue, reconstruction of annulus, and AV replacement. Fifteen months later he presented with a huge aortic root pseudoaneurysm (PA). This case illustrates late occurrence of aortic root PA following AV surgery for endocarditis.
