Abstract

This report describes the diagnostic workup of a case of a pseudonaneurysm of the heart resulting from Staphylococcal pericarditis and/or abscesses of the myocardium. The percardial effusion and myocardial abscesses were detected on 2D echcardiography and computed tomography. The resulting pseudoaneurysm could be demonstrated on magnetic resonance imaging and color Doppler ultrasound, and confirmed by left ventriculography. Color-encoded Doppler ultrasound alone would have provided the definitive diagnosis of the aneurysm.
