A Giant Coronary Aneurysm in a Suspected Kawasaki Disease Causing Asymptomatic Myocardial IschemiaFunding None.
Coronary involvement in Kawasaki disease is not uncommon; however, giant coronary aneurysm exceeding 50 mm is extremely rare. In this article, we presented a case of giant coronary aneurysm involving right coronary artery with associated asymptomatic myocardial ischemia as evident by multimodality imaging.
Patient consent for publication was duly obtained for this study.
