A 38-year-old female with a history of primary mitral regurgitation experienced shortness of breath even at rest 4 months previously. Cardiac computed tomography showed a large unruptured aneurysm arising from the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa adjacent to the anterior mitral leaflet. The patient passed away because the pseudoaneurysm ruptured into the pericardium. (Level of Difficulty: Beginner.)
