The article presents the clinical trial of the 68 year old woman with decreased exercise tolerance and episodic chest pain. The general practitioner diagnosed the patient with aortic stenosis and was confirmed through echocardiogram. After 2 years of the clinical trial, the disease remained unexplained despite of duodenal biopsy, colonoscopy, and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Reportedly, the patient has experienced intermittent epistaxis and several episodes of melaena and anemia.
