We present a case of isolated prolapse of the tricuspid anterior leaflet in an asymptomatic 34-year-old man who was referred to our hospital for a routine check up. We performed two-and three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE). We found three-dimensional TEE a useful, non-invasive tool that can provide additional information to two-dimensional echocardiography in the assessment of tricuspid valve prolapse.
