Abstract

We report a patient whose clinical and echocardiographic findings were compatible with a diagnosis of aortic intramural hematoma, but magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a prominent and localized periaortic deposit of fat as the cause of the transesophageal echocardiographic appearance. This is a significant caveat that must be borne in mind when interpreting echocardiographic images obtained in patients with suspected intramural aortic hematomas.
