Aneurysmal dilatation of the ductus arteriosis has been considered a rare but potentially fatal abnormality. The mechanism of ductal aneurysmal formation remains uncertain. Plain chest radiography has proven helpful in the diagnosis of ductus arteriosus aneurysm (DAA), before the application of transthoracic echocardiography. The transthoracic echocardiography is an important tool for the diagnosis and follow-up of DAA. We present a case of congenital ductus arteriosus aneurysm in a newborn, that was an incidental discovery. The diagnosis was made by echocardiography, three-dimensional surface rendering computed tomography (CT), and spontaneous regression after four weeks of follow-up.
Key Words: Patent ductus arteriosus , Aneurysm
