We report the case of a 40-year-old woman who presented with an ulcer of the descending aorta 9 months after ascending aortic surgery for intramural aortic hematoma, which was treated surgically with a supra-coronary aortic replacement. Treatment of the second aortic lesion and the choice between endovascular or surgical approaches are discussed.
