Aortic aneurysm may develop with surprising rapidity. A case is recorded in which an aneurysm of the arch of the aorta developed in the remarkably short period of seven weeks. Chest radiographs, one showing the apparently normal cardiovascular shadow, and another, only seven weeks later, of the fully developed aneurysm, are reproduced.
