Although ventricular aneurysm may be compatible with good health and even with strenuous physical activity over a short period of time, it is most unusual that an individual with a progressively enlarging aneurysm of the left ventricle is able to continue his daily activity and maintain himself as a useful, productive member of society for a period of 10 years before succumbing to his underlying cardiac disease. The following case is reported because of the degree of well-being achieved over this number of years during which time the patient was closely followed clinically, radiographically and electrocardiographically.
