    Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm (SOVA) can arise from any of the three aortic sinuses. Aneurysm arising from the right coronary sinus, rupturing into the right atrium is extremely uncommon. SOVA’s are seen more in males than females and in Asians than other ethnic groups. Majority of the cases are diagnosed during routine echocardiography and conventional angiography.

We report the case of a SOVA affecting the right coronary sinus and its subsequent management.
