Acquired pseudoaneurysm of the left ventricle is a rare disorder that usually occurs after myocardial infarction (MI) or after cardiac surgery. Rupture of the free wall of the left ventricle due to myocardial infarction (MI) occurs in almost 4% of patients with infarcts and in 23% of those dying of myocardial infarction. Left ventricular pseudoaneurysms are often asymptomatic and are discovered incidentally upon investigation of some other condition. It is extremely infrequent that their diagnosis is carried out as a result of a distal embolization in the lower extremities, as presented in the following clinical case.
