Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm (SVA) is a cardiac anomaly due to the defective connective tissue at the aortic root. It is usually congenital and sometimes acquired. They can remain asymptomatic and be detected incidentally or can manifest with heart failure and its sequelae when ruptured. We report a case of Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm dissecting into the interventricular septum.
