Abstract : Primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) with the insertion of a stent is a well-established procedure for management of coronary artery disease. Infected pseudoaneurysms following PTCA and stenting are very rare and have poor outcomes if not managed properly. We are presenting a case of a man aged 50 years with infected pseudoaneurysm of the left anterior descending artery following multiple percutaneous interventions for coronary artery disease. In this paper, we have described the presentation, diagnosis and management of this patient and have discussed the aetiology and management options of infected pseudoaneurysm affecting coronary arteries.
