1. Patient presentation

  • A 11-year-old boy presented with a systolic murmur discovered during a routine examination at
    school.

  • Echocardiography revealed stenoses of the 3 supra-aortic trunks, and suggested aortic
    coarctation and thickening of the left ventricular wall.

  • Contrast-enhanced CT was performed to evaluate the entire aorta.
