Ventricular diverticula are a rare congenital abnormality characterized by synchronized contractility. Isolated diverticula mostly remain asymptomatic until adulthood. In this case report, we describe a 22-year-old woman with a history of pain in her arms and cold-induced skin discoloration. She was evaluated with echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, which illustrated a muscular basal diverticulum in the left ventricle.
