We report the first case of a patient with large pericardial cyst occurring concurrently with a very large thoracic aortic aneurysm. There have been no patients reported in the literature with this constellation of syndromes. Additionally, this case was followed through a period of 4 years, enabling the natural evolution of both pathologies to be visualised.
