Abstract

Aorto-left ventricular tunnel (ALVT) is a congenital anomaly of aortic root which is an extra cardiac connection between the aorta and the left ventricle. It is usually short and direct but this report describes an aneurysmal aorto-ventricular tunnel which due to large left ventricular and small aortic hole culminated in aneurysm. This type of ALVT might be misdiagnosed as other cardiac lesions.
