MOMOLLI, Marcelo Kuhn et al. Calcified aneurysms in coronary arteries of a 48-year-old patient. Arq. Bras. Cardiol. [online]. 2001, vol.76, n.3, pp.258-260. ISSN 0066-782X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0066-782X2001000300009.
This is a case report of a 48-year-old female patient with a compatible history of Kawasaki disease during childhood, who was admitted to the emergency coronary unit with unstable angina pectoris. Coronary angiography identified two coronary aneurysms, one causing right coronary occlusion and the other causing severe obstruction of the left anterior descending coronary artery. Coronary artery bypass surgery was indicated.
