Abstract

We report a case where dissection of the aorta occurred in pregnancy; only medical management was undertaken. Delivery was by Caesarean section during extradural anaesthesia and was accomplished safely several weeks after the dissection. The aetiology, association with pregnancy, diagnosis and management of acute dissection of the aorta are discussed.
