A mitral subannular left ventricular aneurysm in an Ovambo man is described. This condition should be suspected in patients of negroid descent presenting with mitral incompetence and a localised bulge on the left heart border on chest radiography. Mitral and aortic subannular aneurysms are discussed, including the diagnostic use of ECG gated cardiac blood pool imaging.
