Coral reef aorta is a rare form of calcifying atherosclerosis typically involving the supra and juxtarenal aorta. P atients classically present with refractory hypertension, intermittent claudication and abdominal angina. The treatment is either surgical via transaortic endarterectomy or through transferal endovascular stentgraft placement. Here we describe the case of a 45yearold female patient infected with human immuno deficiency virus, with resistant hypertension, lower limb and abdominal claudication, who was successfully treated with endovascular stent placement. We f urther provide a brief overview of the disease characteristics and treatment options.
