Abstract: A 7-month-old female child was diagnosed to have a massive right atrial aneurysm, presented with arrhythmias. She was treated by restorative right atrioplasty without using cardiopulmonary bypass. She had good postoperative outcome and a 5-month follow-up remains uneventful. In the absence of major congenital heart defects, aneurysm of right atrium can be treated without using cardiopulmonary bypass.
