Bicuspid pulmonary valve is a rare echocardiographic finding, particularly if not associated with other congenital heart diseases. We report the incidental case of a severe giant pulmonary arterial aneurysm associated to bicuspid pulmonary valve in an asymptomatic 79-year-old patient. Multimodality cardiac imaging was important for the correct diagnosis and to exclude any other potential complication. (Level of Difficulty: Beginner.)
