Accessory mitral valve tissue is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly, and is usually incidentally detected in childhood. In this case, we present a 65-year-old man with aortic stenosis originating from an accessory mitral valve leaflet attached to the anterior mitral leaflet. Interestingly enough, the patient’s accessory mitral valve remained undetected for years until he became symptomatic for degenerative aortic stenosis. Aortic valve replacement and excision of the accessory mitral valve attached to the anterior mitral leaflet was performed with a transaortic approach instead of atriotomy. It was also unusual to see accessory mitral valve tissue with aortic stenosis instead of other frequently associated congenital anomalies.
