We describe the case of a 3-year-old child with neonatal Marfan syndrome complicated by mitral valve prolapse with regurgitation, marked aortic root dilatation, and ventricular tachycardia. The patient had resolution of ventricular tachycardia following surgical intervention consisting of a valve-sparing aortic root replacement and mitral valve annuloplasty.
