Pseudoaneurysm of mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa (P-MAIVF) is a rare, well-known entity with few cases reported in the literature. We here present a case report of repair of large P-MAIVF that was successfully managed. Postoperatively patient had an uneventful course and patient was asymptomatic at 3rd month follow-up. The cause of P-MAIVF could be an atheromatous ulcer at interleaflet trigone with severely calcified aortic valve as in our case. Even if the imaging and diagnostic modalities are inconclusive, a strong suspicion should be made preoperatively in the presence of abovementioned combination for better preparedness to improve the outcome of surgery.
