Abstract

We report a case with a large calcified mass on the posterior annulus of the mitral valve. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) showed a large, round, and echo-dense mass with central echolucencies resembling liquefaction. TTE was useful in establishing the diagnosis of caseous calcification of the mitral annulus.
