We describe a case of coarctation endarteritis in an adult and review the literature pertaining to this condition. Adult coarctation endarteritis is a rare entity but often represents the initial presentation of coarctation. Diagnosis is critically important given the risk of rupture. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging can be helpful in management.
