Abstract

Giant coronary artery aneurysm is a rare condition of coronary artery disease. We report a 49-year-old female who presented with chest tightness and persantin thallium scan showing myocardial ischemia. She was admitted to our hospital for cardiac catheterization. A giant right coronary artery aneurysm was noted. Surgical resection of the aneurysm was performed smoothly. Pathologic report showed atherosclerotic change of vessel wall. The underlying cause of the aneurysm in this patient is discussed.
