Double orifice mitral valve (DOMV) is a rare congenital anomaly of the mitral valve apparatus consisting of an accessory bridge of fibrous tissue, which partially or completely divides the mitral valve into two orifices. It usually occurs as an associated lesion. Encountering a DOMV as an isolated finding meriting intervention is indeed rare. We, here, report a case of “complete bridging type DOMV” occurring as an isolated entity and presenting as severe congenital MR requiring surgery.
