We report a rare case of congenital left ventricular aneurysm, diagnosed by spiral CT angiography. Despite 1 s time acquisition, spiral CT, with adequate acquisition parameters and bolus injection of contrast medium, produced sufficiently good images to permit visualization of the aneurysm. Subsequently, reconstructions (shaded surface display and multiplanar reformation) were performed to demonstrate the relationship of the aneurysm with the remainder of the left ventricle, the wide neck of the aneurysm, and the absence of contractility, therein permitting differentiation from a congenital diverticulum.
