We report a case with echocardiographic demonstration of native congenital bicuspid aortic valve endocarditis with multiple subaortic complications. Transesophageal echocardiography in this case revealed large vegetations with multiloculated aortic paravalvular abscess around the cusps; a high-acquired restrictive membranous ventricular septal defect with vegetations extending to the tricuspid leaflets and paravalvular aortic regurgitation caused by aortic leaflet perforation.
