Myocardial infarction is rare in the newborn period. We describe a case in which myocardial infarction was suspected at 25 weeks of gestation by fetal echocardiography. There was an aneurysm of the left ventricular apex with paradoxical motion and bulging of the left ventricular free wall during systole. The diagnosis was confirmed by postnatal electrocardiogram, vectorcardiogram, and thallium myocardial perfusion imaging.
