Pseudoaneurysm of mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa is a rare entity related to mostly infective endocarditis and surgical trauma of aortic valve. Its diagnosis may be missed following trans-thoracic echocardiographic assessment. Therefore, further imaging investigation such as trans-esophageal echocardiography and computed tomographic angiography may play a key diagnostic role. Here we present the successful surgical treatment of a 30- year-old male patient referred for surgical treatment of mixed severe calcific aortic valve disease and apparently without additional anatomical abnormalities.
