Coarctation of the abdominal aorta is an uncommon process but an important cause of systemic hypertension. Angiography is the investigation of choice to establish a diagnosis and document the extent of involvement. However, angiography does not provide an etiological diagnosis; and it may not be possible to distinguish an acquired coarctation from a congenital process. Three patients with coarctation of the abdominal aorta are presented.
