A giant right coronary artery aneurysm (60 × 70 mm in size) was incidentally found by chest X-ray as an abnormal right atrial enlargement, and it needed surgical resection. Although the majority of giant coronary artery aneurysms present with symptoms of coronary ischemia, this case presented without any specific symptom. This study indicates that when chest X-ray shows abnormal atrial enlargement, a differential diagnosis of giant coronary artery aneurysm may need to be considered.
