An Unusual Anatomy - Thoracic Aorta Aneurism

Joao Oliverio Ribeiro, Joao Pinto Machado, Eurico Oliveira


Abstract: The authors present a case of a patient that recurred to the emergency department complaining of dyspnea and fever. There was no history of traumatism. The diagnosis of Pneumonia was made, and he began antibiotic therapy. Since the image of the R-ray was suspicious, the patient was proposed to the internment, proposal that was refused. A re-evaluation appointment was then scheduled. The patient achieved a progressive improvement of his complaints with the prescribed antibiotherapy, and at the re-evaluation consult had a complete resolution of the complaints. The second X-Ray was then obtained, with resolution of the pneumonia, but maintaining the suspicious left mid-thoracic image. A subsequent CT-scan confirmed the patient had a thoracic aorta aneurism.
