ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Aortic dissection.

History: A previously healthy 22-year-old active duty male presented with intermittent left upper quadrant/epigastric abdominal pain for two and a half weeks.

Findings: An acute abdominal series/chest xray demonstrated widening of the mediastinum with a dilated aortic knob and apparent aneurysmal dilatation of the descending thoracic aorta.

Ddx: Traumatic aortic dissection Aortic aneurysm Non Traumatic aortic dissection Mediastinal tumors

Dxhow: Gated contrast imaging of the chest and abdomen.

Exam: Physical exam was nonspecific.

No MeSH data available.


Volume-rendered 3D imaging clearly show the enlarged aorta. The ascending aorta was determined to be approximately 2.4 cm in diameter at the aortic annulus, 4.0 cm at the sinotubular junction and 5.8 cm at its maximal diameter in the ascending segment.
