Aortic aneurysms are extremely uncommon in women under age 40 and are rarely encountered by obstetricians. Various physiologic changes of pregnancy appear to make pregnancy a risky situation of rupture of an aortic aneurysm and pregnancy is discouraged in women with an aortic aneurysm. Development of pregnancy induced hypertension in women with an aortic aneurysm is a profound problem and their treatment is not established. We report a case of emergent cesarean delivery followed by aortic aneurysm replacement surgery in a patient with thoracic aortic aneurysm which was accompanied by pregnancy induced hypertension.
Key Words: Thoracic aortic aneurysm, Pregnancy, Pregnancy induced hypertension
