Coarctation of the aorta is a rare cause of severe hypertension in pregnancy, often discovered in childhood and exceptionally in pregnant women with hypertension. It is suspected in the presence of a clinical picture of asymmetric blood pressure, confirmed by Angio scan. Arterial hypertension is responsible for complications such as aortic dissection and aneurysm rupture, with a poor prognosis. Treatment is based on endovascular and surgical methods, the choice of which depends on the terrain, and above all on drug-based control of blood pressure. Prognosis depends on early management. Our patient progressed well with symptomatic treatment during pregnancy and underwent vascular prosthesis surgery 1-year post-partum, with good progression and a 3-year follow-up.
