Left ventricular pseudoaneurysms can occur after myocardial infarction or trauma, but are extremely rare in pediatric patients. We present a case of post-traumatic left ventricular pseudoaneurysm, in whom the causative event was some time before the acute clinical deterioration. The 9-year-old boy had repeated presentations for chest pain and lethargy for some months prior to admission. The report describes an effective primary suture repair.
