Abstract

Isolated mitral valve aneurysm is rarely reported in children. In most cases it is associated with underlying diseaes such as infective endocarditis. MVA can lead to severe complications that needs surgical intervention. In this report, we present a 9-year old asymptomatic male patient with anterior mitral valve aneurysm diagnosed incidentally during pre-operative evaluation.
