Congenital left ventricular diverticula are rare and usually asymptomatic. Generally other cardiac malformations accompany and they are diagnosed during early childhood. In this article we report a 70-year-old female patient with preoperative chest pain in whom a contractile isolated left ventricular diverticulum is found during left ventriculography. The coronary arteries were normal and she had no other congenital abnormalities. We decided to follow-up the patient medically.
