We report a case of an 18-year-old man without tuberculosis history who presented with chest distress, dyspnea, and fever. Chest computed tomography scan and echocardiography showed left ventricular posterior wall pseudoaneurysm and perforation. Unfortunately, the patient died shortly after surgery. On the basis of surgical pathology, we made a final diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis complicated with left ventricular pseudoaneurysm. This has not been reported before in the published literature.
