Congenital ventricular diverticulum is a rare congenital anomaly, which is defined as an outpouching structure that contains all the three layers of heart; that is, endocardium, myocardium, and pericardium and shows synchronous contractility. It remains clinically asymptomatic. The treatment of the left ventricular diverticulum (LVD) is undefined. We report a rare case of LVD presented as fetal bradycardia and further postnatally as ventricular premature complexes. A conservative approach with follow up was adopted in the case.
