Diagnostic workup revealed a left ventricular pseudoaneurysm of the inferolateral wall. Coronary artery disease and mitral valve regurgitation were concomitantly identified. Surgical intervention on these issues was successful. This case report highlights a rare but important complication of myocardial infarction.
