Submitral aneurysm is a rare cardiac malformation commonly reported in young adult African ancestry. Transthoracic echocardiogram is a gold standard test for diagnosis. Magnetic resonance imaging provides detailed anatomic and functional information of the heart. We present a case of a large bilobed submitral aneurysm in-witch the magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the same findings of the transthoracic echocardiography and in addiction also showed a parietal thrombus.
