A case of iatrogenic left ventricular pseudoaneurysm in a male patient, with a diagnosis of pericarditis, is presented. The patient developed severe complications after an attempted diagnostic and therapeutic pericardiocentesis. Six months later, after corrective surgery, the pseudoaneurysm recurred. The patient had a second operation and two connections to the left ventricle were found. One year later the patient is well.
