ABSTRACT

Background: Congenital heart defect exists from birth but is usually detected in a later stage of life, as in case of quadricuspid aortic valve. A great majority of quadricuspid aortic valves do not have a normal function and often necessitate surgical treatment. Aim: To report a case with quadricuspid aortic valve accompanied with complications. Case Presentation: We present a case of a male detected with quadricuspid aortic valve of four equal sized cusps accompanied by abnormalities, yet managed successfully under conservative treatment. Conclusion: Patients with a quadricuspid aortic valve require careful clinical evaluation and close follow up.
