PMID:  7847985     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 58-year-old man presenting with solitary aneurysm of a peripheral pulmonary artery was treated by left lower lobectomy. Histologically, the aneurysmal wall showed medial hypertrophy with the loss of smooth muscle fibers, without evidence of a mycotic process or inflammatory exudate. The aneurysm appeared to be congenital in origin.
