We describe the successful management of a rare case regarding an adult Caucasian who developed a left inferior ventricular pseudoaneurysm as a consequence of an influenza A virus infection of the upper respiratory tract followed by acute myocardiopericarditis. The cardiovascular features of this case illustrate the importance of raising a sufficient clinical index of suspicion for this common, but potentially lethal, entity.
