Coexistence of left ventricular true and pseudoaneurysm together is although rare but can be a possible sequelae of ventricular remodeling postmyocardial infarction. True aneurysm can be suspected on the basis of persistent ST-segment elevation on electrocardiogram several weeks after myocardial infarction while pseudoaneurysm can only be diagnosed after a comprehensive echocardiography examination. We describe a rare case of true aneurysm of the left ventricle apex and pseudoaneurysm of midanterior septum wall confirmed by myocardial contrast echocardiography.
