Background: Primary aorto-enteric fistula is a rare condition, with fatal outcomes without surgical management. Case Report: We present one such case where an elderly patient presented with pain abdomen and a ‘herald bleed’, with a mycotic aortic aneurysm, warranting emergency surgery. Conclusion: Emergency surgical management is the only interventional modality that plays a pivotal role in preventing mortality.
