Abstract


Riportiamo un raro caso di anomalia valvolare congenita. Una donna asintomatica di 17 anni è stata indirizzata al nostro laboratorio di ecocardiografia per una valutazione di idoneità allo sport agonistico (pattinaggio artistico). La paziente non presentava altre anomalie cardiache congenite né anamnesi familiare di malattie cardiovascolari.
L'ecocardiografia transtoracica e la risonanza magnetica cardiaca hanno rivelato una malformazione quadricuspide della valvola aortica con un lieve rigurgito aortico.


Parole chiave: Cardiopatie congenite; Anomalie della valvola aortica; Quadricuspidia aortica.
