Objective: Bicuspid pulmonary valves as a rare cardiac anomaly results in hemodynamic alterations leading to aneurysmally dilation of pulmonary artery,which have been reported in association. Pulmonic stenosis is usually presented as a part of a complicated disease (e.g.tetralogy of Fallot) or in association with other abnormalities such as corrected transposition of great arteries,although it can be developed as a distinct entity.
Case presentation: The case is described a 36 years old man with history of syncope and dyspnea. The complementary studies revealed isolated bicuspid PS and aneurysmally dilated main PA.
Conclusion: Main pulmonary artery aneurysm and fish mouth bicuspid pulmonary valve,both are rare cardiac anomalies that sometimes presented in association.Pulmonic stenosis can occur as an isolated anomaly but more often is part of a complex of defects.The present report emphasizes the fact that an isolated bicuspid anomaly of the pulmonary valve may be compatible with normal cardiac anatomy and remain uneventful even on its own accord,although our case presents with signs and symptoms of severe pulmonic stenosis at the age of 36.
