Abstract Congenital aortic regurgitation is an extremely rare cardiac lesion. This is a case report of an infant with a severe degree of valve regurgitation due to absence of the noncoronary aortic cusp. We show the echocardiographic, angiographic, and surgical aspects of the case, emphasizing the importance of a precise anatomical diagnosis and the problems of early valve replacement.
