Abstract

We present a rare case of a 71-year-old man who had myocardial infarction 9 years ago. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography revealed presence of a large pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricular (LV) apex and anterior wall with thrombus. The diagnosis of LV pseudoaneurysm was confirmed by electrocardiography – gated multidetector computed tomography. The patient did not consent for surgery and remained on pharmacological treatment.
