Résumé
This article shows a case of double-chambered left ventricle in asymptomatic 60-year-old man. This rare congenital entity is usually diagnosed in the neonatal or paediatric age, and it is characterized by the subdivision of the left ventricle in two chambers by an abnormal septum or muscle band. Differential diagnosis includes two other congenital left ventricular (LV) outpouching entities, such as diverticulum and aneurysm. As shown in our case, double-chambered left ventricle exhibits mixed features. A comprehensive cardiovascular magnetic imaging study is useful in the distinction of these closely related congenital diseases and, therefore, important for the correct final diagnosis.
