Although more than 400 cases of dissecting aneurysm have been reported, only 11 have been correctly diagnosed during life. Shennan,1 in an extensive review of the literature up to 1933, accepts six cases.2 He does not accept the cases of Finny (1885), Prescott (1897), Mager (1908), and Heller (1904). Since Shennan's review, five more cases3 have been diagnosed during life. Hamman4 and Gatewood5 have each diagnosed a case after death but before the necropsy findings were known.
The purpose of this paper is to report two additional cases diagnosed during life and to outline briefly the clinical and pathologic features
