Abstract

A case of coronary angiodysplasia combining large aneurysms of epicardial arteries with diffuse malformation of intramural vessels is reported. Clinical presentation may mimic a vascularized cardiac tumor. Although leaking of the aneurysms in the pericardial space may occur, this entity seems to have a benign prognosis not requiring surgical repair.
