Pulmonary artery dissection is a rare event and usually occurs as a complication of chronic severe primary or secondary pulmonary arterial hypertension, trauma, vascular abnormality or chronic inflammation however Idiopathic pulmonary artery dissection is extremely rare and usually not diagnosed during life as it leads to sudden death. We report a rare case of dissecting pulmonary aneurysm in a very young patient without obvious cause. This case was unusual that the patient was hemodynamically stable despite symptoms of chest pain and mild dyspnea since 15 days. We describe Chest radiograph, Echocardiography and CT findings in a patient with dissecting pulmonary aneurysm.
