Abstract : Syphilitic aortic aneurysms are uncommon today. A syphilitic aneurysm eroding through the anterior chest wall with successful surgical treatment is reported. The large size these aneurysms reach, in conjunction with the overlying pressure-induced skin necrosis necrosis can represent a technical challenge to the surgeon, both in the method of repairing the aneurysm as well as reconstructing the chest wall. Syphilitic aortic disease is also briefly reviewed.
