DRIVER ROWLAND, M.D.
Until recently cardiac aneurysm, though common at autopsy, has not often been diagnosed clinically.1 Up to 1930 only 10 cases had been diagnosed premortem.2 Today, although the diagnosis is by no means commonplace, it is made more and more frequently.
The clinical,1 radiological,3 and electrocardiographic4 features of cardiac aneurysm have been described, but the possibility of diagnosing this condition is not appreciated by most internists and cardiologists.
Because of this condition it was thought desirable to report a case diagnosed clinically as a cardiac aneurysm, and attempt to correlate the clinical, radiological, and electrocardiographic features of value.
