We study the convex hull of the intersection of a convex set E and a linear disjunction. This intersection is at the core of solution techniques for Mixed Integer Conic Optimization. We prove that if there exists a cone K (resp., a cylinder C) that has the same intersection with the boundary of the disjunction as E, then the convex hull is the intersection of E with K (resp., C). The existence of such a cone (resp., a cylinder) is difficult to prove for general conic optimization. We prove existence and unicity of a second order cone (resp., a cylinder), when E is the intersection of an affine space and a second order cone (resp., a cylinder). We also provide a method for finding that cone, and hence the convex hull, for the continuous relaxation of the feasible set of a Mixed Integer Second Order Cone Optimization (MISOCO) problem, assumed to be the intersection of an ellipsoid with a general linear disjunction. This cone provides a new conic cut for MISOCO that can be used in branch-and-cut algorithms for MISOCO problems.
