This is an uncommon case of a 9-year old girl who was diagnosed as RHD with infective endocarditis presenting with a seven-week history of left sided weakness and concomitant suprarenal saccular abdominal aortic aneurysm measuring 5.3 x 6.6 x 6.5 cm in size. She underwent repair of the abdominal aneurysm on second hospital stay, and five days later, she had mitral valve replacement. Our objectives for submitting this case report are (1) to determine if all the clinical manifestations of this patient have arisen from the problem of infective endocarditis; (2) to analyze the proper timing and prioritization of surgical intervention needed by the patient, i.e., the repair of the suprarenal aneurysm or the open heart surgery for mitral regurgitation and (3) to discuss the anesthetic considerations of her current state of illness disease and what are the implications of these co-existing pathologies for the planned procedures.
