We report the case and cardiac imaging of a 27 year old African female with every clinical feature of advanced rheumatic heart disease. The case illustrates the continuing life-threatening impact of rheumatic heart disease in young adults. Appropriate diagnosis and management of rheumatic heart disease in the UK remains relevant with increased immigration of at-risk populations.
