Abstract

Aortic dissection is clinically suspected from the typical symptoms and signs and may be confirmed by computed tomography or aortography. But atypical presentations can be seen in a minority of cases, such as SVC syndrome, right pulmonary artery stenosis etc. We present a case which was initially suspected to be a right atrial tumor because of a large filling defect in the right atrium on radionuclide angiocardiography but finally confirmed to be dissection of ascending aorta by computed tomography.
