Coarctation of the aorta (CA) accounts for 5% of all congenital heart disease. One of the most feared complications of coarctation of the aorta is the development of saccular aortic aneurysm. In this paper, we described a 20-year-old man with coarctation of the aorta in association with a large calcified saccular thoracic aneurysm just distal to the coarcted segment detected both in aortography and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA).
