Abstract

Bicuspid aortic valve is a relatively common cause of congestive heart failure in young patients. In a young population, symptoms mnay not correlate with the severity of disease. We report a case of bicuspid aortic valve presenting with clinical features of unicuspid aortic valve, and mild symptoms despite severe hemodynamic compromise.
