    Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) can be caused by several etiologies including vasculitis, drug exposure, anticoagulants, infections, mitral valve stenosis, and regurgitation. Chronic mitral valve regurgitation (MR) has been well documented as an etiological factor for DAH, but there have been...

    Mitral valve prolapse is a common condition often associated with mitral regurgitation. Intuitively, one would expect a positive correlation between the severity of mitral valve prolapse and the associated regurgitation. This assumption is overturned by an unusual case of functional...

    Introduction: One of the most common causes of mitral chordae rupture is a myxomatous valve disease1,2 that causes acute volume overload and progressive heart failure. We present a patient with severe volume overload due to massive mitral regurgitation and acute glomerulonephritis. The key issue...

    This is the report of a case of fibroelastoma of the mitral valve, presenting with a cystic image at the echocardiogram, that was confirmed at surgery and by histopathologic examination. Severe mitral valve regurgitation was diagnosed by Doppler study and angiocardiography. Both features, the...
