Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms rarely present until rupture occurs. We describe the case of a patient who presented with acute right heart failure and upon investigation was found to have an unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm causing right ventricular outflow obstruction; there was an associated subaortic ventricular septal defect. To the best of our knowledge, only 1 other case with these features has been reported in the medical literature.
