Double-orifice mitral valve (DOMV) is a rare congenital anomaly consisting of an accessory bridge of fibrous tissue, which divides the mitral valve (MV) into two orifices. The mitral leaflets are essentially normal in most cases, but they can be regurgitant or stenotic. It is most commonly associated with a variety of other cardiac anomalies. Isolated DOMV with normal MV function is very rare. We present here a rare case of congenital DOMV in a 25-year-old female diagnosed by real-time three-dimensional echocardiography (RT3DE). RT3DE enabled complete anatomical and functional assessment of MV apparatus. It added much valuable information over conventional 2DE that helped in establishment of the diagnosis, identification of the anatomical type, and selection of the proper management.
