Abstract

The case is presented of a non-infectious anterior mitral valve leaflet diverticulum, which appeared as symptomatic mitral stenosis. Unlike previous reports, there was no histological myxomatous degeneration of the valve. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first time a mitral valve diverticulum resulting in severe mitral stenosis has been reported in the literature.
