Patients who undergo prosthetic aortic valve replacement for infective endocarditis and have no recurrent infection after surgery, rarely develop pseudoaneurysm of either the aortic root or the sinus of Valsalva (SV). Pseudoaneurysm of the 

SV can have fatal complications, including rupture. The case is reported of a large pseudoaneurysm of the SV that developed after surgical intervention for aortic valve endocarditis, and which was successfully treated.
