Abstract

Isolated congenital pulmonary valve regurgitation (IPVR) is very rare. Etiologies of absent pulmonary valve and bicuspid/dysplastic pulmonary valve are among the more common congenital causes of this condition. Here we present a rare cause of IPVR caused by absent single pulmonary cusp. Review of literature to establish timing and management of isolated pulmonary regurgitation is also attempted.
