Abstract

This article describes the transesophageal echocardiographic findings in a patient with pathologically proven mitral valve aneurysm. This aneurysm probably occurred as a complication of aortic valve endocarditis. Transesophageal echocardiography showed a saccular structure attached to the left atrial side of the anterior mitral leaflet with systolic expansion and diastolic collapse, and its orifice was visualized with excellent resolution. Transesophageal echocardiography is a useful diagnostic tool for evaluation of mitral valve aneurysm.
