Lipomatous atrial septal hypertrophy (LASH) is a benign lesion characterized by massive accumulation of fat in the interatrial septum. Multimodality imaging, with echocardiography being the first technique, complemented by multislice computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging help to make accurate diagnosis. Here, we report a case with a LASH with epicardial fat extension causing aneurysmal dilatation of left superior pulmonary vein with thrombus formation and pericardial effusion.
