Abstract

A case of an eight-year-old boy who experienced commotio cordis with the development of myocardial infarction and a ventricular pseudoaneurysm is described. Progressive enlargement of the aneurysm resulted in distortion and compression of the overlying coronary arteries, causing myocardial ischemia.
