A case of isolated chronic tricuspid insufficiency due to closed chest trauma is described in this report. Studies for carcinoid syndrome were negative. At surgery the posterior leaflet of the tricuspid valve appeared to be torn and disrupted. The other leaflets were shortened and atrophic. The results of pre- and postoperative cardiac catheterization with long-term follow-up to the present, and the available literature on this rare entity has been briefly reviewed.
