Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A young male presented with progressively increasing breathlessness for one year. Echocardiography showed a cystic echolucent cavity in interventricular septum communicating with sinus of Valsalva. A diagnosis of unruptured aneurysm of Valsalva dissecting into the interventricular septum was made. This complication is extremely rare and early recognition may prevent a potential catastrophe.
