Unusual Presentation of IgG4 Related Disease with Coronary Aneurysms
Abstract

IgG4-related systemic disease is characterized by high serum IgG4 concentrations, sclerosing inflammation containing numerous IgG4-positive plasmacytes, occurrence in multiple organs and good response to steroids. Although abdominal aneurysms in IgG4-related systemic disease are well described, there are only a few case reports of coronary artery involvement [1]. Recent studies have suggested that IgG4-related disease may underlie certain coronary artery abnormalities, such as coronary aneurysms, pseudo tumour, wall calcification, and intimal thickening.
