Quadricuspid aortic valve is a rare congenital cardiac abnormality which is frequently detected at necropsy or surgery. Here, a young, asymptomatic patient with mild aortic and mitral regurgitations is described in whom a quadricuspid aortic valve was detected incidentally on transesophageal echocardiography performed initially to diagnose ruptured mitral chordae tendineae.
