A 21-day-old girl presented with congestive heart failure of acute onset and Doppler evidence of mitral regurgitation, which subsequently proved fatal. Necropsy revealed an anomalous arcade lesion of the mitral valve. The tendinous cords of the tricuspid valve were also abnormal, a finding, to the best of our knowledge, not reported before.
