True aneurysm of the coronary arteries is of rare occurrence. Since Bougon1 described the first case in 1812 there have been 48 reported cases in the literature. It would be repetitious to review all the available cases, as various authors, notably Packard and Wechsler,2 Scott,3 Harris4 and Rigdon and Vandergriff5 have made exhaustive studies of the literature pertaining to this rare entity. We are, however, reporting another case of a true aneurysm of the left circumflex coronary artery, which would bring to 49 the total number of authentic cases of coronary aneurysm.
