We present a peculiar case of left ventricular aneurysm which had calcified over 14 years post anterior myocardial infarction and appears to be like an egg in the heart. Previous cases reported of calcified LV ring were associated with Left Ventricular mural thrombus. In our patient, we did not identify any mural thrombus.
