This study includes a series of 5 cases demonstrating cardiovascular manifestations of findings of IgG4-related disease. Two cases demonstrate peri-aortic soft tissue thickening in the infrarenal abdominal aorta and bilateral ostio-­proximal common iliac artery. In 2 cases there were circumferential soft tissue lesions around the arch of the aorta. One of the cases showed coexistent, biopsy-proven Riedel’s thyroiditis and infiltrative soft tissue along the right atrial wall and interatrial septum. In one case there was a partly calcified mass in the left hemi-thorax consistent with a diagnosis of IgG4-related fibrosing mediastinitis.
