A 17 years-old boy with hypertension underwent cardiology assessment for episodes of dyspnoea and palpitations. Cardiac angiography showed post-istmic severe aortic coarctation. The malformation was successful treated by implanting a covered stent in aorta. The manuscript describes in detail this case and analyzes the available literature on the topic.
