Abstract

Aneurysmal left atrial appendage (LAA) is a rare congenital anomaly. It may result in supraventricular arrhythmias and embolic complications. We present a case of a 33 year-old female in whom echocardiography showed a giant LAA (6 x 3 cm), confirmed by computed tomography. Key words: left atrial appendage, aneurysm, dilation
