Aortic dissection was confirmed in 33 patients at autopsy at the University Hospital of the West Indies between 1975 and 1988. Twenty-five cases were acute and 8 chronic and the diagnosis was made antemortem in 5 cases overall. The high risk of rupture of proximal dissections involving the ascending aorta into the pericardial sac is clear, and the overriding importance of systemic hypertension is once again confirmed. An unusual finding was the higher proportion of females to males. A higher index of suspicion should permit and antemortem diagnosis and apropriate therapy in a larger proportion of patients (AU)
