Coronary artery aneurysms are rare entities most commonly detected during coronary angiography incidentally. The incidence has increased during the recent years due to widespread use of drug eluting stents. Stasis with the aneurysm may lead to thrombosis and occurrence of myocardial ischemic symptoms. Percutaneous intervention strategies and surgical options are available. Here, we report a case with distal left main coronary artery aneurysm presented with acute coronary syndrome and treated successfully with surgery.
