Abstract

Aortic regurgitation developed in a 56 year old man with severe nephrotic syndrome. Cross sectional echocardiography showed bilateral aneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva and a bicuspid aortic valve. He died of intercurrent pneumonia. Postmortem examination confirmed the presence of the congenital aneurysms.
