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.
