Salmonella bacteremia commonly presents as typhoid (enteric) fever in tropics. Seldom do we come across some of extraintestinal manifestations of salmonellosis such as mycotic aneurysm and hepatitis. We are submitting the case details of a 60-year-old male who presented with compressive features of a ruptured mycotic aneurysm and hepatitis. Ruptured mycotic aneurysm was accidentally discovered during imaging study of the spine. Such cases pose a diagnostic challenge and require meticulous search for cause.
