ABSTRACT
The case of a 42-year-old woman who complained of headaches and vague associated symptoms which were diagnose as a pseudocoarctation and aneurysm of the aortic arch is presented. The anomaly was corrected by obliteration of the aneurysm, division of the ligamentum arteriosum, and insertion of a patch (arterioplasty) in the narrow position of the aortic isthmus. The pathology, diagnosis and management of pseudocoaretation are discussed briefly.
