Abstract

A 59-year-old female patient with Adult Onset Still's Disease (AOSD) presented with hemoptysis and pseudoaneurysm from an aortic root vent cannulation site that was created 4 years earlier for combined mitral and aortic valve surgery. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully repaired and the patient remained well during a follow-up period of 20 months.
