Abstract

We report the case of an undiagnosed descending aortic aneurysm, combined with coarctation and persistent left brachiocephalic truncus in a 59-years old male. This case underscores the increased necessity for aortic imaging while facing a poorly controlled hypertension, erroneously considered as of essential origin.
