Mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa aneurysm is a rare disease entity whose aetiology remains uncertain. Most of the cases reported are believed to be a sequela of infective endocarditis. We present a case of congenital mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa aneurysm, representing the first patient to be diagnosed at birth in the literature. This report illustrates the imaging features of mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa aneurysm and the role of multidetector computed tomography in the diagnostic process.
