Caseous calcification of the mitral annulus: mimicking a cardiac mass.
Keywordsechocardiography, cardiac mass, mitral annular calcification
Mitral annulus calcification is a common incidental finding in echocardiography examination of predisposed populations. On the other hand, caseous calcification of the mitral annulus is a rare variant that challenges the physician to differentiate it from different causes of cardiac masses. We describe a case of incidentally discovered caseous calcification confirmed with CT cardiac and cardiac magnetic resonance.
