From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Familial aortic dissection is an autosomal dominant inherited disease that will result in dissection of the aorta, and dissecting aneurysm of the aorta, or rarely aortic or arterial dilation at a young age, yet the basic defect remains unknown.[1] it can occur in the absence of clinical features of Marfan syndrome and of systemic hypertension.[2][3][4][5][6]
