Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is a rare but fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction. Prompt diagnosis with noninvasive imaging is key and surgical repair, though challenging remains the treatment of choice. We describe a rare case of inferior wall AMI complicated with VSR and posterior true ventricular wall aneurysm.
