We report a rare case of a 25-year-old asymptomatic female who was referred for evaluation of a cardiac murmur. She had recent history of treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis. On investigation, she was diagnosed with left ventricular pseudoaneurysm (PSA) likely secondary to rupture of myocardial tubercular abscess. She was operated successfully for the left ventricular PSA and was discharged from the hospital in a good condition.
