Male patient with a history of high lateral myocardial infarction experienced 45 days before admission was accepted to our clinic with the initial diagnosis of congestive heart failure. Physical examination revealed 2-3°/6 systolic murmur in the mesocardiac region. Telecardiography revealed a mass of 12x6 cms in the left hilus. Pseudoaneurysm was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography and followed by left ventriculography. The symptoms of heart failure disappeared after successful surgical repair.
