Parachute and parachute-like mitral valve are extremely rare congenital anomalies of mitral valve involving multiple aspects of mitral valve apparatus. It is usually seen in the younger age group. Very few cases of isolated parachute-like mitral valve in the adult age group have been in the literature. We hereby present a case report of 70-year-old elderly man who had presented with recurrent stroke and a routine transthoracic echocardiography had revealed a classical description of asymmetrical mitral valve.
