Abstract : A 57-year-old man presented to the emergency department with an 8-day history of abdominal and suprapubic pain radiating in the back associated with fever (38.6°C), myalgia, and a painful rectal examination. A treatment with ofloxacin had been prescribed for a suspected prostatitis. His past medical history included overweight and current cigarette smoking (30 pack-year). Clinical examination found a tense and nondepressible abdomen without nausea or vomiting. On auscultation, he had an abdominal vascular murmur.
