Abstract

We describe a case of a 54-year-old woman who had a right cardiac mass found on coronary angiography. Echocardiography, computed tomography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging characterized it as a thrombosed giant right coronary artery aneurysm. This was confirmed on pathology. We present the role of multimodality cardiovascular imaging in the diagnosis and characterization of a giant coronary artery aneurysm.
