We report a case of a large symptomatic thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm in a 22-year-old man with a history of Kawasaki disease in childhood. According to multislice computed tomography scan findings, the aneurysm was classified as Crawford type III. Coronary angiography revealed a giant aneurysm of the left coronary artery and aneurysm of the circumflex artery. Functional tests for myocardial perfusion and function revealed no significant ischemic territories. Because of symptoms of imminent rupture, aneurysm resection and aortic reconstruction with a 26-mm zero porosity Dacron graft was performed and was successful. Cardiovascular consequences of Kawasaki disease are discussed with attention to the late sequelae. Indications for surgical treatment and importance of follow-up into adulthood are emphasized.
