Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aneurysm of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is a very infrequent condition. We report a case of a two-year-old child with congenital aneurysm of the LAA with a large thrombus in it. He presented with an episode of seizures with left-sided hemiparesis. Diagnosis was based on transthoracic echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging. The patient was successfully treated by surgical resection of the aneurysm and removal of the thrombus.
