An unusual case of abdominal aneurysm: Inferior vena cava aneurysm — A case report
Journal of Cardiology Cases
Venous aneurysms are rarely reported in the literature since they are usually asymptomatic and incidentally detected due to complications such as thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Often an inferior vena cava (IVC) aneurysm is detected by imaging studies performed for other causes. We report a case of large Type II IVC aneurysm associated with severe pectus excavatum in an asymptomatic man detected on routine 2D echocardiography. Focal narrowing of the IVC at the level of xiphisternum detected in multi-slice computed tomography might be the possible etiology for IVC aneurysm.
