Abstract

The parachute mitral valve is an extremely rare inborn malformation of the mitral valve. It is usually seen in  younger children. This is a case of a 17-year-old girl who presented with high output heart failure secondary to severe iron deficiency anaemia, and her transthoracic echocardiography revealed all chordae tendineae of the mitral valve inserted into one papillary muscle in the left ventricular cavity with grade I-II mitral regurgitation and mild mitral stenosis. Other inborn heart malformations were not found. Hence, the diagnosis of an isolated parachute mitral valve was made. She has one of the rare cases of inborn malformation of the mitral valve.
