Aortic coarctation is a congenital malformation of the aorta that should be diagnosed and corrected early in life. The natural history of unrepaired coarctation of the aorta includes the development of systemic hypertension and subsequent morbidity and death from cardiovascular disease. Here, we present a case with replacement of the aortic arch and its branches by tortuous multilobulated aneurysms as a result of untreated aortic coarctation.
