We report a case of an elderly patient with diabetes with calcific aortic atherosclerosis in whom a juxtarenal aortic aneurysm developed after Candida fungemia. Our approach included extraanatomic reconstruction of the lower extremities, hepatorenal arterial bypass of the right kidney, retroperitoneal excision of the infected aortic segment, intravenous administration of amphotericin B after operation, and lifetime suppression of Candida organisms with oral antifungal therapy.
