A 16 year old girl with rheumatic involvement of the mitral and tricuspid valves underwent diagnostic cardiac catheterization. Minimal calcification of the mitral valve and extensive calcification of the tricuspid valve were identified. This is the first report of calcification of the rheumatically involved tricuspid valve.
