A 65-year-old woman was hospitalized with an anterior wall myocardial infarction, complicated with congestive heart failure. Three months later, she was rehospitalized with acute pulmonary edema and a new apical holosystolic murmur. Radionuclide ventriculography in the left anterior oblique position showed a giant pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle that was verified on echocardiography. The patient was transferred to the cardiosurgery center, and a successful aneurysmectomy was performed.
