We report an unusual case of accessory mitral valve tissue associated with a situs inversus and missing obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract. To our knowledge our patient is the only elderly patient with an accessory mitral valve with associated situs inversus undergoing surgical resection. The report emphasizes direct cardioscopy through the aortic annulus allowing precise excision of the abnormal tissue.
