Abstract:Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a systemic hereditary disorder characterized by localized cellular proliferation and extracellular matrix abnormalities resulting in both renal and extra renal manifestations, with multiple structural flaws such renal cysts, cerebral and aortic aneurysms, annulo-aortic ectasia, and valvular insufficiency states. Association between Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) has rarely been documented before. We herein report a case of Autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) who presented with shortness of breath, was diagnosed as a case of ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) and defect was closed successfully.
