Septal aneurysm with associated anomalies
A 15-year-old boy had a history of a functional systolic murmur with systolic and diastolic murmurs and radiological evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy. The angiocardiogram demonstrated an aneurysm of the membranous septum, bicuspid aortic valve, dilatation of the left subclavian artery and left common carotid artery. Echocardiography showed a holosystolic prolapse of the mitral valve with mitral insufficiency and a bicuspid aortic valve with insignificant incompetence of the aortic valve. Classical TM mode echocardiography did not show an aneurysm of the membranous septum.
