Abstract

Interventricular membranous septal (IVMS) aneurysm is a rare condition with no accurate incidence. It is known to be associated with 0.3 % of congenital heart disease and 19 % of ventricular septal defects. IVMS aneurysm is often asymptomatic but can be complicated with right ventricular obstruction, rupture, thromboembolism, and conduction defects. Clinicians and radiologist should be aware about this rare clinical entity and evaluation of any possible underlying cardiac abnormalities should be performed. Conservative management with close follow up is the mainstay of management in the absence of complication.
