Annular submitral left ventricular aneurysm, which predominantly occurs in blacks who live in tropical regions of Africa, is a relatively unknown cardiac condition in the United States. We describe a patient with submitral left ventricular aneurysm who underwent resection of the mass and of the native mitral valve, followed by mitral valve replacement.
