Aortic dissection occurring during pregnancy is a rare but potentially lethal condition for both the mother and the fetus. We report a case of Stanford An aortic dissection in a full-term pregnant woman with no risk factors who was admitted for an elective caesarean section. The patient underwent emergent ascending aorta replacement immediately after caesarean section with a favorable maternal and fetal outcome.
