Abstract

Left ventricular (LV) diverticulum is a rare congenital abnormality for which the etiology, management, and natural history are very poorly understood. Although most often observed as a single diverticulum, we report a case of multiple LV diverticuli in an asymptomatic adult referred for coronary evaluation due to an abnormal electrocardiogram. LV diverticuli are often associated with other congenital malformations, but can also be found in isolation. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging provides enhanced ability to determine size, location, and morphological characteristics, which may improve lesion assessment and management. A review of the condition and reported complications is discussed.
