Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is a scarce and generally lethal congenital malformation. Patients with complete IAA rarely reach adulthood without surgical intervention. In this report, we describe the case of a 50-year-old man who was found to have IAA and mixed aortic valve disease after examination for hypertension. Later in the hospital course, he developed intra ventricular haemorrhage. The exact cause of intra ventricular haemorrhage and its association with IAA could not be further evaluated as unfortunately patient died 2 days after the haemorrhage. To our knowledge, this is the first report of an adult patient with all 3 abnormalities.
