The authors report an exceptionally rare patient with findings of a bicuspid aortic valve in conjunction with a mature cystic teratoma in a middle-aged male presenting for symptomatic chest pain. Surgical resection and valve replacement were performed, confirming the rare cardiac tumor. While certainly interesting, this case highlights the importance of maintaining a broad differential diagnosis and the appropriate work-up, treatment and considerations for such rare pathology.
