A syncope was the first symptom of aortic rupture in a patient with chronic arterial hypertension. This syncope was the consequence of an acute haemopericardium which resulted in a sudden drop of the cardiac output. Urgent echocardiographic examination in the emergency room made early diagnosis and life-saving pericardiocentesis possible.
