A 24 year old male attended the outpatient department of a local hospital with the chief complaints of pain in the central chest for two years and easy fatigability of the left upper limb for one and half years. After performing various examinations and investigations, he was sent to Al Helal Specialized Hospital with the preliminary diagnosis of coarctation of the aorta. The pain was dull aching in nature, continuous in duration, mild in intensity mostly, but sometimes intense sharp stabbing, radiating to the back. There was no known aggravating factor but lying down relieved it partially.
