Abstract EARLY in 1954, DuShane and Edwards1 reported two examples of the relatively uncommon combination of congenital aortic stenosis and endocardial sclerosis of the left ventricle. They expressed the belief that, when the diagnosis is made, surgical correction of the stenotic valve should be attempted. They further cautioned, however, that relief of the stenosis may not in itself be sufficient to restore normal cardiac function. Since no surgical attempt has thus far been reported, it seems desirable to present observations recently made in a patient with this type of condition. This case differs from those reported by DuShane and Edwards,1 however, in that the endocardial sclerosis involved the left atrium, the left ventricle, and to a slight extent the mitral valve. The aortic stenosis was probably a part of the process of endocardial sclerosis. REPORT OF CASE A 5-week-old girl was first seen with the chief complaint of rapid References 1. 1. DuShane, J.
