Unicuspid aortic valve is a very rare congenital anomaly of aortic valve. Acommissural form usually presents at birth and unicommissural form presents in adulthood. They usually present as dyspnea, angina, and/or syncope. Mostly, it is detected on autopsy or pathological examination of surgically excised valve. Here, we present a rare case of unicuspid unicommissural aortic valve presenting with infective endocarditis with aortic root abscess and complete heart block. The patient was diagnosed on transthoracic echocardiography. Unfortunately, the patient succumbed to illness before surgery.
