ABSTRACT
We report a unique case of a 33 year old female with congenital aneurysm of the left ventricular apex associated with an aneurysm of the left main coronary artery and surgically repaired supravalvular aortic stenosis. The congenital aneurysm of the left ventricular apex was not associated with a midline thoraco-abdominal defect, as reported in the medical literature. The patient survived two episodes of thrombo-embolism and is well after 10 years of medical follow-up.

    Congenital aortic stenosis is a relatively common cardiac anomaly encountered in approximately 5% of all children with heart disease. The Ross procedure is increasingly used for replacement of the aortic valve in children. We report a 12-year-old boy who was born with congenital aortic stenosis...
