Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication of myocardial infarction.Differentiation between true and false aneurysms, although difficult, is crucial, because of the different treatment options they entail.We present a rare case of a giant pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle related with a previous myocardial infarction.
