Pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa (MAIF) usually occurs as a rare complication of aortic valve endocarditis; however, it may also be idiopathic in etiology. We report a 45-year-old male presenting with acute-onset progressive dyspnea of 2 weeks duration. There was no history of fever. Symptoms were secondary to MAIF aneurysm rupturing into the left ventricular outflow tract causing a large shunt which was diagnosed on echocardiography. The MAIF aneurysm that is idiopathic in etiology is a relatively rare entity as compared to that because of infective endocarditis.
