Rights and Permissions

Radiotherapy is an important treatment modality for various thoracic malignancies but is associated with long-term risk of radiation-associated valve disease (RAVD). We hereby report a case of a lady who had received radiotherapy 30 years back for carcinoma breast and was now found to be having clinically significant RAVD involving all the four cardiac valves. Simultaneous involvement of all the four valves in RAVD is extremely rare and has not been reported previously.
