A case of angiographically proven posterolateral left ventricular false aneurysm is presented. The patient underwent successful surgery. The echocardiogram revealed large echo-free spaces behind the posterior wall of the left ventricle, delineated by pericardial echoes and lined internally by extra echoes. These echocardiographic findings are consistent with false aneurysm containing a clot. This report indicates that in patients with previous infarction and distorted cardiac silhouette, echocardiography may be helpful in the diagnosis of true or false ventricular aneurysm.
