Rheumatoid heart disease and the mitral stenosis secondary to it in the long term are still important cardiovascular problems in developing countries. Percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty is a valid treatment option with low complication rates for relieving the signs and symptoms of selected patients with mitral valve stenosis. In this report, we describe subacute mitral regurgitation secondary to anterior leaflet rupture following percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty and the management strategy in a 54-year-old female patient. Such a complication is rare in experienced hands in the current era.
