Aneurysms can be seen as complications of myocardial infarctions. They are generally located in the apical and anterior segments but left ventricular inferoposterior wall aneurysms are rare. After a myocardial infarction, left ventricular aneurysms can cause symptomatic intractable ventricular arrhythmias. We report a rare case of a left ventricular posterior wall aneurysm containing a calcified thrombus that caused ventricular tachycardia.
