A 50-year-old man with a history of left ventricular aneurysmectomy was evaluated with a 64-multislice computed tomogram, which demonstrated left ventricular enlargement and a pseudoaneurysm at the apicolateral side. The images were critical to our management. We resected the pseudoaneurysm with an excellent outcome.
