Abstract

Either the pseudoaneurysm of mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa or the aneurysms of Valsalva are rare cardiac conditions. Concomitant diagnosis in the same patient is extremely rare with only one case report. Herein, we described an extremely rare case of concomitant pseudoaneurysm of mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa and aneurysm of left sinus of Valsalva in 21-year-old black man admitted with new-onset of heart failure (NYHA class III) diagnosed by transesophageal echocardiography. Despite medical therapy optimization for heart failure, the patient died waiting for cardiac surgery. Regarding the case, we discussed possible etiology, clinical presentation and the role of echocardiography in the diagnosis and surgical approach of this very rare association.
