Angiography use has become increasingly common worldwide. Coronary artery aneurysm may be an incidental finding during angiography. Occasionally it might be symptomatic or may become symptomatic over the course of time. Rupture of aneurysm may lead to disastrous complications. Here we present a case in which aneurysm was asymptomatic but surgical intervention was done because of rapid increase in the size of aneurysm. This is to drive home the point that timely surgical intervention is instrumental in preventing complications associated with possible rupture of the aneurysm.
