The purpose of this paper is to describe the preoperative diagnosis and the surgical treatment of a symptomatic ductus arteriosus aneurysm in a 65-year-old adult. The diagnosis was made by CT scan of the chest and confirmed by aortic angiography. The aneurysm was stapled and resected uneventfully through a left posterolateral thoracotomy. Early diagnosis and treatment methods were reviewed in the literature; and simple operative interventions were recommended for the future.
