A 60-year-old man was admitted to our institution with abnormal ECG findings. Coronary CT and angiography showed coronary aneurysms from the left main trunk to the bifurcation of the left anterior descending artery, and the left circumflex artery, with severe stenosis and complete obstruction of the proximal right coronary artery. Morphological evaluation findings strongly suggested that the coronary aneurysms were highly related to childhood Kawasaki disease. We successfully performed triple vessel coronary artery bypass grafting. Here, we report a very rare case of coronary aneurysms presumed to be due to childhood Kawasaki disease in an elderly man.
