Abstract: 

A 23 years old female patient with diagnosis of main pulmonary artery (MPA) aneurysm is reported. With early diagnosis of pericardial effusion, she had been operated for pericardia I biopsy and drainage. In further studies by chest CT scan, large cyst in anterior mediastinum was found and she became candidate for operation. In surgery via midsternotomy, for releasing excessive adhesions, cardiopulmonary bypass was established. In exploration of mediastinum, MPA aneurysm and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) were detected. The PDA was closed and after resection of aneurysm, it was repaired by pericardial patch. The postoperative course was uneventful and she was discharged after two weeks. In one year follow-up, she was in good condition.
