Five patients had angiographically proved coronary artery aneurysms. The clinical picture was similar to that of patients with ordinary coronary artery disease. The coronary artery aneurysms were multiple and associated with extensive coronary atherosclerosis. The natural history of this condition is not known. Of the three patients treated medically and two patients treated surgically, all are alive one to two years later.
