A rare case: A giant right coronary artery aneurysm mimicking a paracardiac mass
Keywords:Coronary, Giant, Paracardiac
Giant coronary artery aneurysms are extremely rare pathologies that can be confused with paracardiac and mediastinal masses, which are usually diagnosed incidentally. In this case report, an 83-year-old patient with a 70x35 mm thrombosed right coronary artery aneurysm misdiagnosed as a paracardiac mass will be discussed in light of the literature.
