抄録

A 76-year-old woman, who had a history of ocular sarcoidosis, was incidentally found to have a huge pulmonary artery aneurysm, along with aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency. She underwent pulmonary artery plication along with surgeries for 3 valves. A specimen of the slightly enlarged ascending aorta revealed the involvement of sarcoidosis in the aortic wall. The systemic granulomatous inflammation process of sarcoidosis possibly affected the valvular and vascular pathology. Herein, we report a rare case of aortic sarcoidosis complicated by a pulmonary artery aneurysm.
