Aortoenteric fistula (AEF) is an uncommon entity with high morbidity and mortality associated with it. Primary AEF can occur in the presence of aortic aneurysm but it is less common as compared to the secondary type, which is associated with the presence of prosthetic graft used for repair of aortic aneurysm or aortic bypass for occlusive disease. Multiple strategies have been described in the literature which needs to be individualized to each patient. This patient had undergone aortobifemoral bypass twice in the past, which makes anatomy hostile, followed by graft infection and graft enteric (jejunum) erosion leading to very challenging case to treat. The patient was managed in two stages, first axillobifemoral bypass followed by explantation of two grafts. He is doing fine at >12 months of follow-up.
