Coronary artery aneurysm (CAA) is an enlargement of the coronary vascular lumen that can’t be fixed and is at least 1.5 times the diameter of the normal coronary segment next to or connected to it. They are usually asymptomatic; their clinical presentation ranges from incidental findings on cardiac imaging to myocardial infarction (MI), and they may result in angina, MI, and sudden death, especially when they are very large. An aneurysm was seen in the middle segment of the left anterior descending artery (LAD) in the images obtained from the patient. After the council, coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) was decided due to the risk of rupture, but the patient and his relatives did not accept the operation. In outpatient clinic visits every 3 months for 9 months, it was observed that her complaints regressed with medical treatment. There is still no clear treatment approach for CAAs and CABG, and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) may be preferred or medical therapy may be used.
