A 71 year-old man with a history of previous anterior myocardial infarction, triple coronary artery bypass graft and left ventricular (LV) aneurysmectomy was admitted to the cardiology unit for chest pain. Physical examination showed a pulsing mass in the left chest wall. Cardiac multislice computed tomography showed a rare case of LV pseudoaneurysm (6.3 x 6 x 10 cm) communicating by a fistulous trait (1 cm) with the left anterior chest wall (C7-C8), creating a subfascial mass (7.1 x 3.6 cm)
