Abstract

A case of a 42-year-old male patient with symptoms of chronic heart failure, history of infective endocarditis and drug abuse is presented. Echocardiography revealed the presence of pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle, probably of post-inflammatory origin. Further course of the disease was complicated by multiorgan dysfunction, inflammatory and intravascular coagulation process, which led finally to acute circulatory and respiratory failure and death soon before planned cardiac surgery. Autopsy confirmed the diagnosis of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm.
