We present the case of a patient previously asymptomatic in which the presence of a pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta was already known for several months, which debuted with the appearance of a pulsatile mass in the anterior thoracic region. It is a destabilisation of the pseudoaneurysm, for which reason it was decided to perform surgery, with a successful result.
