Résumé
The gold standard to clarify an acute pathology of the ascending aorta is transesophageal echocardiography or contrast-enhanced computed tomography. Neither of these methods led to the correct finding in our case of an inflammatory aneurysm of the ascending aorta. Both assessments resulted in the diagnosis of an acute dissection of the ascending aorta.
