Aortic dissection is a rare known complication of taking Maguo (main ingredient is methamphetamine). To date there have been 0 case report of its occurrence. The suspected pathophysiology is transient severe elevation in blood pressure, causing a shear force on the thoracic aorta. For the first time, we report a case of aortic dissection secondary to Maguo ingestion with an unusual presentation.
