Pulmonary artery aneurysm is a rare clinical entity and its definitive diagnosis requires a high degree of clinical suspicion. In this article, we report on a 27-year-old female patient admitted with the signs and symptoms of coronary ischemia due to the compression of pulmonary artery aneurysm on the left main coronary artery. The patient underwent successful surgical correction.
