The risk factors of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are old age, atherosclerosis, hypertension, smoking and family history of AAA. And the risk factors of aortic dissection are old age, atherosclerosis, hypertension and other aortic diseases such as aortic aneurysm, coarctation of aorta, aortic arteritis and bicuspid aortic valve. Although AAA and aortic dissection shares common risk factors, combination of these two disease are very uncommon. We report a case of 69-year-old female presented with chronic ascending aortic dissection combined with infrarenal AAA with a diameter of 7 cm and a case of 73-year-old-male presented with intramural hematoma of descending thoracic aorta combined with infrarenal AAA with a diameter of 6 cm.
