Thirteen cases which fit the criteria for pulseless disease and/or atypical coarctation were reported. Four of them showed the typical features of pulseless disease, while 2 were considered pure forms of coarctation of the abdominal aorta. The other 7 had characteristic features of both diseases. Although these cases may be considered as pulseless disease associated with coarctation of the thoracic and/or abdominal aorta, or vice versa, the lesions should be considered as one and the same. The etiology is most likely arteritis. On the basis of these findings, it is concluded that atypical coarctation of the aorta is chiefly of acquired origin.
