Abstract

We report a case of partial congenital absence of the pericardium associated with severe aortic stenosis on a bicuspid valve in a 72-year-old man. Diagnosis was based on echocardiography and confirmed with magnetic resonance imaging, and the patient benefited from pericardioplasty and aortic valve replacement.
