An aortic aneurysm is a rare clinical entity since most patients will present with complications of dissection or rupture before the size of aneurysm reaches that magnitude. The classical presentation of a patient with acute aortic dissection (AAD) is characterized by severe chest, back, or abdominal pain, ripping or tearing in nature (mimics myocardial infarction). However, some patients present with painless AAD. We hereby present a case report of a 28-year aged female who presented with palpitation from the past 2 years, diagnosed to have aortic aneurysm with dissection and severe aortic regurgitation. She eventually underwent Bentall's procedure and had an uneventful recovery.
