Abstract
We report a very rare case of mitral valve dissection and aortic-left ventricular tunnel caused by possible autoimmune vasculitis. We suspected Behcet's disease in this patient. There was no obvious clinical evidence of infective endocarditis. Echocardiography is the diagnostic tool of choice to recognize valvular dysfunction, related pathology, and possible complications. The patient may require immunosuppressive therapy due to the high likelihood of recurrence in the perioperation period.
