Internal mammary artery aneurysm in Marfan syndrome: case report

Journal Article:

Abstract

Marfan syndrome has a pleomorphic phenotype. Those affected have abnormalities in the eyes and in the nervous, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems. Among these abnormalities are many reported aneurysms, involving the ascending, descending thoracic and abdominal aorta, the sinus of Valsalva, and the internal carotid artery. We report a left internal mammary artery (LIMA) aneurysm in a patient with Marfan syndrome and no other known predisposition to such an aneurysm. No other case of LIMA aneurysm in Marfan syndrome has, to our knowledge, been reported. (author)
