Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mycotic coronary aneurysms are rare, and simultaneous involvement of the left main, left anterior descending and circumflex arteries has never been described. In the present case, multislice computed tomography was an invaluable tool to adequately delineate the aneurysm from the surrounding structures and to plan cardiac surgery accordingly.
