Massive myocardial infarction can lead to left ventricular free wall rupture (LVFWR). Sometimes it can be contained by a pericardium leading to the formation of the pseudoaneurysm. In view of the high tendency to expand and rupture an urgent surgery is indicated. We experienced a rare case of giant left ventricular apical pseudoaneurysm which was successfully managed with surgical intervention.
