Twenty four cases of Gsell-Erdheim syndrome observed in 1999-2001 have been examined. There were 20 men (83.4%) and 4 women (16.6%). The age ranged from 22 to 69 years but 6 men (25%) died at age under 50. The following variants of aortic lesions were revealed in autopsy material: intimal tear with the following dissection which extends along the aorta to variable distances--in most cases into iliac arteries. The morphologic changes, associated with were: anuclear zones, elastolysis, thinning, dyschromia and fragmentation of elastic fibers, focal hyperelastosis. Such changes were revealed in all parts of the aortic wall, independently of the site of rupture.
