    Abstract

    A case of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm due to rupture of a myocardial tuberculoma is presented. The diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm was initially suggested by echocardiography and was confirmed by angiocardiography. The aetiology was suggested at operation and confirmed by histological examination. This is a very rare condition which is usually diagnosed only at necropsy.
