Abstract

Neurological complications of coarctation of aorta include spontaneous SAH, intracerebral hemorrhage, and cerebral abscess. Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) present as compressive myelopathy is not known. We describe an adult male presenting to neurology department with progressive paraparesis and was detected to have IAA with intraspinal collaterals causing compressive myelopathy. He was successfully treated with percutaneous stenting of IAA with dramatic improvement in paraparesis.
