Abstract

We describe a case of infrarenal abdominal coarctation in a 44-year-old woman who presented with severe uncontrolled hypertension. She had no signs of lower limb ischemia with normal distal pulses. Electron beam tomography revealed abdominal aortic coarctation extending from the superior mesenteric artery to the inferior mesenteric artery with a diameter of 9 mm. Also, at the level of coarctation, the aortic branches including the renal arteries were in a serpentine shape.
