This article illustrates some diagnosis images related to mid aortic syndrome and alagille syndrome. A magnetic resonance angiogram of an abdominal coarctation in a 13 year old patient with Alagille syndrome. Although her femoral pulses were weak, she was asymptomatic with no upper limb hypertension or symptoms of intermittent claudication. There is also narrowing of the proximal renal arteries bilaterally. The findings of the MR angiogram were similar to that of invasive angiography performed previously.
