Özet

Coarctation of the aorta is one of the congenital heart diseases diagnosed primarily in childhood and early adolescence. A 67-year-old female was admitted to the hospital with chest pain. Angiography revealed a coarctation of the aorta, coronary ectasia and dilatation of the ascending aorta. This case attracted our attention because the first diagnosis was made at such an advanced age and coarctation was accompanied by coronary ectasia and dilatation of the ascending aorta. Therefore, we decided to report the case.
