Aneurysms of the pulmonary artery are very rare. Here, the authors report the clinical scenario of a middle aged diabetic who presented with suppurative cardiac tamponade that was complicated by mycotic aneurysm of the pulmonary artery. In addition to the clinical presentation, aetiology, diagnostic modalities and therapeutic options are discussed.
