Abstract

Annular Subvalvular Left Ventricular Aneurysm (ASLVA) is a rare cardiac lesion of unknown etiology predominantly seen in young patients of African origin. A patient with ASLVA is presented in whom histo-pathological features of the aneurysm wall revealed cardiac lymphostasis. This finding may bring new light on understanding this unusual heart condition.
