Chest X-rays can detect aortic aneurysms or other silently developing aortic or cardiac diseases. In the present study, an ascending aortic aneurysm was detected in a 20-year-old woman with a persistent cough presenting to our emergency department. A Bentall procedure was carried out under deep hypothermic circulatory arrest.
