Sub mitral aneurysm is a congenital out pouching of the left ventricular wall invariably occurring adjacent to the posterior leaflet of the mitral valve. This rare cardiac entity was initially described among the natives of South and West Africa and is considered rare in the Indian subcontinent. It usually presents with heart failure symptoms. We report a case of a 19 year old girl with sub mitral aneurysm who underwent aneurysm repair and mitral valve replacement requiring IABP support post operatively. A good knowledge about the inter relationship between aneurysmal sac and the mitral valve is necessary for proper surgical repair.
