Abstract
Left atrial wall calcifications are an extremely rare finding of unknown cause usually associated with rheumatic disease. Only a few case reports of this entity are found in the literature, mostly describing the findings on conventional chest radiography, echocardiography, and angiography. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case documented with multislice computed tomography.
