A pseudoaneurysm of the native sinus of Valsalva compressing a coronary artery is extremely rare. Herein, the case is reported of infective endocarditis with a pseudoaneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva compressing the right coronary artery as the primary diagnostic finding, and

its successful treatment. It is suggested that patients with suspected pseudoaneurysms of the sinus of Valsalva should undergo cardiac computed tomographic angiography for diagnosis of this condition.
