We report the case of a 58-year-old lady who presented with abdominal pain and backache. Although initial evaluation was strongly suggestive of abdominal aortic dissection, she was ultimately found to have multiple arterial aneurysms. Work-up for underlying vasculitis was negative. Surgical repair was planned and the patient was referred to a cardiovascular surgeon. This case highlights the importance of careful radiological assessment in patients with suspected aortic dissection.
