Immunoglobulin G4-related disease, a newly emerging systemic autoimmune disorder, can potentially involve the cardiovascular system. The standard treatment for immunoglobulin G4-related cardiovascular disease has not been established. We encountered a very rare case of an immunoglobulin G4-related inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm coexisting with a coronary artery aneurysm and periarteritis. The patient underwent surgical resection for the abdominal aortic aneurysm, followed by successful corticosteroid therapy for the coronary artery lesions. This is the first report of steroid-sensitive immunoglobulin G4-related coronary artery disease. A carefully planned treatment strategy for the multiple cardiovascular lesions was invaluable in the present case.
