This is the first description of a patient with Marfan syndrome and an aneurysm of the ventricular septum. Apart from a borderline dilatation of the ascending aorta, there were no cardiovascular manifestations of Marfan syndrome. A transesophageal echocardiographic examination showed a large aneurysm of the ventricular septum. To prevent the imminent rupture and the acute occurrence of a significant left-to-right shunt on the ventricular level, as well as increasing irritation of tricuspid valve, an elective operation was performed. In patients with Marfan syndrome, besides the routine cardiological diagnostics, a search for intracardial defects is also necessary.
