Presents the case of a mediastinal tumor simulating the idiopathic dilation of the pulmonary artery. Background on the idiopathic dilation of pulmonary artery, a congenital anomaly; Diagnosis of the condition by cardiac catheterization and angiocardiography; Roentgenographic picture produced by mediastinal tumors, closely stumulating the condition; Capability of the tumors to produce compression of cardiovascular structures with clinical and hemodynamic consequences.

    Nine children and 1 adolescent with anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary trunk (ALCA) were studied between 1970 and 1982. Serial angiographic and hemodynamic data are compared with the clinical course. Four patients had separate conus coronary arteries with a major contribution to...

    We report a case of congenital absence of the cervical and petrous part of the left internal carotid artery, the middle and proximal part of the basilar artery, and the V4 segment of the left vertebral artery associated with a left persistent trigeminal artery and a coarctation of the aorta. The...
