We report a patient with infective endocarditis of the aortic valve and a calcified anterior mediastinal mass. Angiography and CT scans disclosed an old post-traumatic aneurysm of the ascending aorta that was also the primary cause of aortic insufficiency. After the termination of antibiotic treatment the patient underwent prosthetic replacement of the aortic and mitral valves, and a unique reconstruction of the ascending aorta. In spite of the prolonged course of the disease, the patient is doing well and is in NYHA class II eighteen months later. J Clin Basic Cardiol 2000; 3: 199-200.
