: Aneurysms of the descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta are life-threatening conditions. All aneurysms which have not yet had an indication for the treatment need regular follow-up to prevent rupture or dissection. We present a case of a patient with a giant aneurysm of the thoracoabdominal aorta who was denied both surgery and endovascular treatment.
