Coronary artery aneurysm is a rare anomaly and is defined as the expansion of the diameters of normal coronary arteries by ≥1.5 times. Aneurysms reaching 4 times the normal size or 8 mm in diameter are defined as giant coronary aneurysms. Giant aneurysms involved in all of the left main coronary artery (LMCA), left anterior descending artery (LAD), and right coronary artery (RCA) are very rare. Here we report a case of a 47-year-old man presenting with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction and LMCA, RCA, and LAD coronary giant aneurysm as well as spontaneous dissection of the distal LAD.

Keywords: Coronary Artery Aneurysm, non-ST elevation myocardial infarction, giant aneurysm
