The rupture of sinus of Valsalva is a rare complication of infective endocarditis. Three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography represents an important adjunctive tool to demonstrate the ruptured sinus of Valsalva with better delineation of its characteristics. We present an adult patient with rupture of right sinus of Valsalva aneurysm due to infective endocarditis of the aortic valve, in whom the two-dimensional (2D) transthoracic echocardiogram erroneously localized the site of rupture into the right atrium. Whereas, 3D transthoracic echocardiogram accurately delineated the site of rupture into the right ventricle and it was confirmed on subsequent cardiac catheterization and angiogram. In addition, 3D echocardiography clearly showed the size and shape of the defect, which helped in successful transcatheter closure of the defect with amplatzer duct occluder device. (Echocardiography ****;**:E1-E4).
