A case of mitral regurgitation (MR) caused by mitral paraannular cyst is reported. A 37-year-old woman on maintenance hemodialysis was admitted to Akita University Hospital because of congestive heart failure. Echocardiography revealed mitral paraannular cyst, which caused coaptation failure of the mitral leaflets and significant MR. She underwent decapsulation of the cyst followed by mitral valve replacement. Postoperative echocardiography showed no recurrence of the cyst three years after surgery. Although mitral annular calcification has been described as a cause of MR in patients with uremia, a report of a solitary intracardiac cyst which causes significant MR is quite rare.
