Abstract

A 45 year old male patient was operated because of acute arterial occlusion in the left leg and after that in the next day; the bilateral upper extremity arterial occlusion was developed. The patient was undergone bilateral upper extremity embolectomies and urgent mitral valve operation. He was diagnosed as acute infective endocarditis and appropriate antibiotic therapy was started. Three weeks later, he was operated because of the hemorrhagic drainage from left femoral incision due the rupture of the mycotic aneurysm. The patient was discharged without complications related to operation.
