Abstract

Aortic dissection is a potentially fatal condition in which there is a tear in the wall of aorta. The “saber-sheath” trachea can be found in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), but is rare in non COPD patients. Occurrence of these two conditions in a same patient is uncommon. Here we report a case of 75-year old male, known systemic hypertensive patient since 3 years, who came to Respiratory Medicine OPD for fitness for prostatectomy, found to have dissecting aortic aneurysm on CT angiogram with saber sheath trachea. Early diagnosis of this condition, followed by appropriate treatment avoided potential complications in the patient.
