Abstract

An elderly patient with sepsis and systemic embolization is described. An intraluminal aortic mass was discovered by transesophageal echocardiography that appeared to be the source of infection in this patient. Transesophageal echocardiography can be a useful diagnostic test in patients with sepsis and systemic embolization of unknown etiology.
