Abstract: 

Surgical revascularization for coronary artery lesions secondary to Kawasaki disease (KD) has been rarely reported in adolescent patients. We report a young adult with no coronary risk factors but with a giant solitary coronary aneurysm with obstructive thrombosis inside, presumably secondary to KD, who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with left internal thoracic artery (LITA) and SVG.
Because coronary artery sequelae of KD can be a cause of ischemic heart disease even in young adults, heightened awareness of this entity is required for young adults with coronary lesions but without coronary risk factors.
