Ventricular pseudoaneurysms occur as complications of myocardial infarction, cardiac operations, trauma, and infective endocarditis. The process involves rupture of the ventricular wall where a structural weakness exists and containment of the blood by the pericardium. Although various malignancies may invade the heart, a pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle caused by tumor has not been reported.
