Abstract: A 51-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with heart failure due to aortic regurgitation. Examination showed severe aortic regurgitation mainly due to cleft-like deformity of the right coronary cusp and single coronary artery. Aortic valve replacement was performed, and the deformity was seen in all aortic cusps. Histological study showed elongation of the leaflets by myofibrotic and fibrotic hyperplasia without calcification and inflammation in the aortic valve. This deformity likely arose from an acquired modification of a congenitally malformed aortic valve.
