Aneurysm of the descending thoracic (DTA) and thoraco-abdominal aorta (TAA) is a life-threatening disorder given the risks of
aortic dissection which requires quick and accurate diagnosis. However, correct diagnosis of AAD could be difficult in some instances
because of the wide variety of clinical presentations. The clinical picture depends on the aortic branches involved, the size and
direction of the dissection, the duration of symptoms, and the location of intimae tear.
In this case report, 48 years old male presented with sudden onset of severe interscapular heaviness type of pain of three hours duration, associated with radiation to anterior chest wall and sweating. He is non-smoker but hypertensive. ECG showed sinus rhythm, with ST-depression and T-wave inversion in the infero-lateral leads. Timed multi-slice helical CT acquisition was taken and revealed a dissection flap of the aortic arch beginning nearly at the left subclavian origin extending up to involve the whole descending thoracic and abdominal aorta with false and true lumens. Cardio thoracic surgeon consultation was obtained.
