The coex­is­tence of an abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm and an ­acute ­aortic dis­sec­tion ­seems to be ­rare and ­only a few ­reports are to be ­found in the lit­er­a­ture. We ­report a ­case of a ­patient ­with ­acute ­aortic dis­sec­tion of the ­descending tho­racic ­aorta ­that ­caused rup­ture of a pre-­existing abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm. The lit­er­a­ture is ­also ­thoroughly ­reviewed.
