A 76-year-old man with systemic lupus erythematosus was found to have an aneurysm of the right sinus of Valsalva. Aortic root replacement with a stentless bioprosthesis, using a full root technique, was successfully performed. The pathological findings of the excised aortic valve were not secondary to atherosclerosis, inflammatory or infectious disease, but seemed to be compatible with those previously reported in a case of systemic lupus erythematosus.
