Imaging modalities have an important role in the diagnosis of the disease, due to its asymptomatic nature. In this article, we report a one-month-old girl with congenital left ventricular aneurysm, a rare condition existing together with congenital heart disease, which was diagnosed by twodimensional echocardiography and angiography.
