Ventricular septal rupture is a rare complication of acute myocardial infarction with important hemodynamic consequences. Spontaneous closure is extremely rare. Without a rapid diagnosis and correction by surgical intervention, the short-term mortality of these patients is higher than 90%. We report the case of a patient with acute myocardial infarction and a ventricular septal rupture that was partially closed by the formation of a thrombus. Early diagnosis was obtained in the emergency room, based on clinical examination and transthoracic echocardiography.
