Coarctation complicated with mycotic pseudo-aneurysm is very rare. We are reporting a case of a 26-year-old man suffered from this pathology. As the incidence of mycotic pseudo-aneurysm is very rare in patients with aortic coarctation, the choice of this pathology for a patient presenting with unexplained fever is the only way to reduce the mortality risk.
