Mycotic coronary aneurysm and pseudoaneurysm are rare infective complications of percutaneous coronary interventions, associated with poor prognosis. Multimodality imaging is recommended to achieve a correct diagnosis. We present a case of post-stenting mycotic coronary pseudoaneurysm complicated by myocardial abscess in which we used different imaging tools, each carrying additional information. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)
