The article presents the cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging performed on a patient suspected to have an aneurysm of the left ventricular free wall. The image was suggestive of an hematoma in the left ventricle and no pericardial effusion was found. Surgical procedure confirmed the diagnosis of hematoma.
