Abstract

The occurrence of aneurysmal dilatation and endocardial fibroelastosis of the left atrial appendage in an 11-year-old boy who experienced chest pain is described. During exploratory thoracotomy the pericardium was found to be intact. Only one previous report of aneurysmal dilatation and endocardial fibroelastosis of the left atrial appendage was found.
