    A mycotic aneurysm is a life-threatening disease that usually presents with nonspecific symptoms. A prompt diagnosis is essential because of the risk of aneurysm rupture and high mortality rate. We describe a case of an abdominal mycotic aortic aneurysm presenting as chronic constipation for 3 weeks, without fever or abdominal pain. Point-of-care ultrasound has the ability to detect silent abdominal aortic aneurysms and serves as a follow-up tool for patients under medical treatment. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Inc.
