The Teaching Point

Involvement of the aorta by FMD is rare, and is mostly detected as a result of complications such as dissection or aneurysm. Hypertension is the most important risk factor for patients presenting with aortic dissection, however, in a patient with diffuse systemic abnormal appearing vessels, other entities including FMD should be considered.

Abstract
Fibromuscular dysplasia is a rare, non-atherosclerotic non-inflammatory vascular disease that most commonly involves the renal arteries and carotid arteries, but has been described in nearly every vascular bed in the body. Complications of fibromuscular dysplasia include aneurysms and vascular dissection. We present a rare case of fibromuscular dysplasia involving the aorta, complicated by type A aortic dissection.
