Abstract

It is well known that coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can affect the vascular endothelium; however, coronary artery aneurysm complicated by COVID-19 in adults has not yet been reported. Herein, we report a case of a newly developed right coronary artery aneurysm in an adult with recent COVID-19 infection. A 66-year-old man was referred for surgical intervention of the right coronary artery aneurysm. His previous coronary angiograms performed 17 months prior revealed no evidence of coronary aneurysm. However, he was confirmed as having COVID-19 four months prior and thereafter newly diagnosed with right coronary artery aneurysm. The further evaluation of the impact of COVID-19 on the occurrence of coronary artery aneurysm may be necessary, considering the alleged correlation between COVID-19 and vascular complications.
