We present a case of a chronic intramural haematoma of the aortic root discovered in the setting of an acute coronary syndrome. We investigated the nature of the lesion through echocardiography, computed-tomography, magnetic resonance and positron emission tomography. In conclusion, the use of complex multimodality imaging led to the final diagnosis and allowed to define the proper management of the lesion.

Abstract

We present a case of a chronic intramural haematoma of the aortic root discovered in the setting of an acute coronary syndrome. We investigated the nature of the lesion through echocardiography, computed-tomography, magnetic resonance and positron emission tomography. In conclusion, the use of complex multimodality imaging led to the final diagnosis and allowed to define the proper management of the lesion.
