Thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections often have inter-related pathologies that are increasingly recognized to have a genetic basis. A patient with a vascular history consisting of a spontaneous aorto-iliac dissection and thoracic aortic aneurysm belonged to a family with a significant self-reported history of aneurysmal disease. Suspecting a genetic component, genetic investigation was undertaken. Three variants of unknown significance were found in the ZNF469 gene, which is responsible for the production of a collagen-related zinc finger protein involved in multiple aspects of the development and regulation of major extracellular matrix components. This is the first report to associate this gene with vasculopathy, and further investigation by our group is underway to understand the role it plays in the development of aneurysmal diseases.
