A case of coarctation of the aorta with repeated intrapericardial haemorrhage consequent on rupture of a dissection of the aorta is descriptionbed. The associated abnormalities are discussed. The lack of evidence of a collateral circulation is emphasized. The condition of coarctation may be completely symptom-free until a terminal complication arises.
