Aneurysms of the right atrium are extremely rare. These aneurysms can be associated with tachyarrhythmia, intracardiac thrombus formation, thromboembolism, and right ventricular compression precipitating heart failure. We report a case of a right atrial aneurysm in a newborn presenting with cardiac failure and multisystem dysfunction.
