A 69-year-old man presented with resistant hypertension, symptoms of calf claudication, faint femoral pulses and relative lower limb hypotension, suggestive of aortic coarctation. CT scanning revealed extensive arterial thrombosis from his lower abdominal aorta to both common iliac arteries as the aetiology of his apparent manifestation of aortic coarctation.
