Abstract

We report a case of a 33-year-old Caucasian male who presented with myocardial infarction and a right atrial mass. Coronary catheterization demonstrated a right coronary aneurysm. In this report, we describe magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings of a right coronary artery aneurysm with thromboembolism formation, resulting in inferior myocardial infarction.
