Abstract

We present a patient affected by systemic hydatidosis with an unusual localization in the thoracic aorta. The pseudoaneurysm, which was treated 8 years ago with conventional surgery, was retreated with an endovascular procedure. The particular evolution of the pathology needed further endovascular intervention. Endovascular exclusion is not the final solution of the disease but protects against rupture of the vessel and systemic dissemination of the disease.
