Abstract

Aortic root abscess or aortic annular abscess is a serious complication of aortic valve endocarditis. It usually occurs in patients with prosthetic aortic valve and coagulase-negative staphylococcal endocarditis. However, we came across a young individual of bicuspid aortic valve with no features of Infective Endocarditis (IE) with severe aortic valve regurgitation with sterile aortic root abscess and severe mitral valve regurgitation. He underwent repair of aortic root followed by replacement of both the valves with mechanical valve prosthesis.
