Isolated sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare congenital pathology associated with a life-threatening course when untreated. In this article, we report a 60-year-old male patient with an isolated aneurysm of right sinus of Valsalva treated by modified Bentall procedure. The patient with cardiac symptoms applied to our clinic for further evaluation. Enhanced computed tomographic angiography and transthoracic echocardiography revealed an isolated aneurysm of right sinus of Valsalva. An optimal management for the condition is not clear, while early surgical intervention is recommended due to potentially life-threatening complications.
