Abstract

In this report, we present an adult patient with dwarfism who had severe aortic stenosis with markedly thickened fibrotic valve leaflets without calcification. These findings were well demonstrated by both two- and three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography and confirmed at surgery and by pathological examination.
