An unusual case is described in which the association of functional subvalvular left ventricular outflow obstruction, valvular aortic insufficiency, and subacute bacterial endocarditis was present. It was not possible to decide whether aortic valvular abnormality antedated the clinical episode of SBE, but the probability is that it did not. The importance of high clinical suspicion of IHSS and the usefulness of transseptal left heart catheterization are emphasized.
