Abstract

Right ventricular (RV) pseudoaneurysm is very rare and is seen after penetrating chest trauma, cardiac surgery, infective endocarditis, myocardial infarction, syphilis, endomyocardial biopsy, lead extraction. Idiopathic right ventricular pseudoaneurysm is even rarer. They have varied presentations depending on the etiology. Diagnosis is usually made by echocardiography. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) helps in delineating the aneurysm and relationship with surrounding structures and helps in guiding the surgery. We hereby report a case of idiopathic right ventricular pseudoaneurysm presented with ventricular tachycardia (VT). Aneurysm was successfully treated by surgical excision. Patient was doing well on follow up with no further VT episodes.
