ABSTRACT

Muscular diverticulum of the left ventricle is a rare anomaly. It is frequently associated with other congenital anomalies of the abdominal wall, sternum, diaphragm, pericardium and the heart itself. These have been described as Cantrell syndrome. This paper reports a case of a 25-year-old female patient submitted to surgical repair of this syndrome.
