We present a case of an 82-year-old lady with recurrent neck swelling and a history of intermittent stridor who subsequently developed a contusion over her lower neck and upper chest. The patient collapsed on her way to have a CT scan and died 24 hours later of a leaking aortic aneurysm. At initial presentation the complete resolution of poorly localizing symptoms and signs almost allowed her discharge from hospital.
