Abstract

The diagnosis of intramural hematoma by echocardiography classically requires the presence of an echolucent, crescentic region in the wall of the aorta. Recently we have encountered 2 patients in whom intramural hematoma wascharacterized only by thickening of the aortic wall, which was circumferential in one patient, thus making the diagnosis difficult to distinguish from common atherosclerotic thickening of the aorta. In one case, computed tomography showed more clearly the abnormal tissue signature of the intramuralblood. In summary, absence of an echolucent zone does not exclude the diagnosis of intramural hematoma. Alternative imaging procedures such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging may enhance the diagnostic accuracy.
