An unguarded tricuspid valve is a rare congenital anomaly. We describe the clinical and echocardiographic features of two young adult African patients with syncope, new-onset right cardiac failure, in whom the diagnosis of isolated unguarded tricuspid valve was established. One of the patients underwent tricuspid annuloplasty with good surgical results.
