BACKGROUND: Interrupted aorta is a rare congenital malformation defined as the lack of continuity between the ascending and descending parts of the aorta.
CASE REPORT: This malformation was first described by Steidele in 1778. To date a few isolated adult interrupted aortic arch patients have been reported and most of them were treated surgically. However, there is not data about outcome of patients who decline surgery or who are not good candidates for surgery because of excessive risks, and there is not a data about how to follow these patients.
CONCLUSIONS: Herein we present a case of adult type A isolated interrupted aorta followed-up for 4 years by medical therapy without complications.
