Discussion (Related Text)

Aortic dissection is a life-threatening illness requiring early diagnosis and treatment. Uncommon early presentations mimicking various illnesses can delay diagnosis. Acute renal failure (ARF) is an uncommon complication of type A aortic dissection (AAD). Presentation with ARF is associated with an increased risk of inhospital death and persistence of renal dysfunction at midterm follow-up in type B aortic dissection, but not AAD.
