Limited aortic intimal tear is an uncommon lesion of the dissection spectrum. The lesion has several imaging features that are not well known, including asymmetric aortic contour abnormalities, filling defects, and various morphologic patterns, such as linear, L-shaped, T-shaped, and stellate configurations. Hemorrhage of the aortic wall may also be present in patients with this rare entity.
