A 28-year-old woman presented with a history of palpitation and frequent episodes of pneumonia. Physical examination revealed a continuous murmur (grade II/VI) in the second and third left intercostal spaces with accentuation of the systolic part in late systole. The patient’s blood pressure was about 135/60 mmHg, and she had no cyanosis or clubbing. Echocardiography demonstrated mild left ventricular dilation and normal systolic function as well as normal right ventricular size and systolic function.
