Ruptured sinus of Valsalva (RSOV) is a rare but potentially fatal condition and is usually associated with congenital conditions like ventricular septal defect (VSD), aortic insufficiency, and bicuspid aortic valve.1 Ruptured sinus of Valsalva is rare in pregnancy and if present, causes additional strain on the already stretched hemodynamics of a pregnant female.2 Very few cases of an RSOV in pregnancy have been reported.2,3 We describe a case of RSOV during pregnancy.
