A case of parachute mitral valve (PMV) associated with multiple muscular ventricular septal defects (VSDs) is reported in a 16-year-old girl who presented with dyspnea and a cardiac murmur. In addition, there were deformities of the right ear lobe and kyphoscoliosis of the thoracolumbar spine since birth. A preoperative diagnosis was made using two-dimensional and Doppler echocardiography, cardiac catheterization and angiocardiography. PMV was found to be stenotic and mildly regurgitant. At surgery, mitral valvuloplasty, preservation of the native valve apparatus and Dacron patch closure of multiple muscular VSDs was achieved. The latest available case reports in the literature pertaining to PMV and associated deformities have been reviewed.
