In this case report we present a 46 year-old hypertensive male patient with a diag- nosis of intramural hematoma of the descending thoracic aorta. He was admitted to emergency de- partment with the complaints of both back pain and upper abdominal pain. Neither no specific positive findings on ECG and nor on direct X ray were observed. Following thoracic computeri- zed tomography (CT) and transesophageal echocardiography intramural hematoma of descending thoracic aorta was confirmed. He was treated and followed with medical therapy and responded well to the treatment. After two years the intramural hematoma was spontaneously resolved on thoracic CT.
