Abstract

Carcinoid heart disease is a rare condition that occurs in half of patients with carcinoid syndrome. The disease mostly affects right-sided heart valves; however, in 5-10%, it can also involve left-sided valves. This case illustrates the most complicated form of the disease with involvement of four heart valves.
