Aneurysms of the interatrial septum are uncommon lesions that are often accompanied by other cardiac anomalies or systemic thrombosis. The authors report 1 case of atrial septum aneurysm that was diagnosed by two-dimensional contrast echocardiography. At surgery a membrane-like, fenestrated aneurysmal protrusion to the right atrium without thrombosis was seen. The atrial septum was closed without using an artificial patch after some of the aneurysm with fenestrations was resected.
