Primary aortic valve tumours are rare. A patient is reported with a papillary fibroelastoma attached to the edge of the right coronary aortic cusp. This tumour was diagnosed by multiplane transoesophageal echocardiography after the patient experienced an acute inferolateral myocardial infarction. Multiplane transoesophageal echocardiography was useful to visualize and identify the precise point of attachment of the tumour, enabling cardiac surgeons to plan aortic valve repair rather than replacement.
