We report a case of anterior left ventricular pseudoaneurysm and associated interventricular septal defect, following myocardial infarction. This report shows an unusual clinical presentation, successful echocardiographic management and surgical findings. Echocardiography appeared to be a useful technique, safe and specific for the diagnosis of a rare complication of myocardial infarction. Early recognition of this rare complication has therapeutic importance because immediate surgical correction is life saving.
