We describe a case of mid-aortic syndrome presenting as systemic hypertension in infancy and early childhood. Angiography of the descending and abdominal aorta is the diagnostic test of choice to confirm the diagnosis of mid-aortic syndrome. Severity of hypertension is one of the major factors in determining the timing of intervention. Because of variability in the anatomic extent of mid-aortic syndrome, management options need to be individualized.
