Abstract

Giant coronary artery aneurysm is rare. A 71-year-old female was referred to our hospital 3 months after onset of symptoms. Work-up including coronary angiogram and computed tomographic angiogram helped a definite diagnosis of a giant aneurysm of the circumflex coronary artery. The patient was conservatively managed with a close follow-up. In this article, this rare lesion was presented with associated anomalies.
