A 35-year-old woman was found on echocardiography to have a pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa, residual ventricular septal defect, and aortic regurgitation. She had undergone surgical closure of a ventricular septal defect at age 7 and was found to have residual shunt several years later. She had been followed nonsurgically and had symptoms of cardiac failure during her 2 pregnancies. The pseudoaneurysm and the septal defect were successfully repaired.
