Abstract

 An 80-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital in April 2016 with an acute high-grade fever and back pain. A systemic contrast-enhanced computed tomography scan disclosed a retroperitoneal abscess around his aorta. The blood culture revealed <i>Klebsiella pneumoniae</i>. Antibiotics (Cefotaxime 1 g i.v. q 6 hours) were administered, but the patient's symptoms worsened. The abscess then ruptured the aorta. An emergency surgical repair was done, and the patient recovered. Invasive <i>Klebsiella pneumoniae</i> syndrome has been detected in southeast Asia over the past two decades, and here we describe a rare case of a retroperitoneal abscess caused by <i>Klebsiella pneumoniae</i> that ruptured the aorta.
