Abnormal con­nec­tions ­between the ­ascending ­aorta and the car­diac cham­bers are ­rare. ­Most are due to rup­tured aneu­rysms of the ­sinus of Val­salva. Con­gen­ital fis­tulae ­between the ­aorta and ­left ­atrium are ­described. We ­report a ­case of ­native tri­cuspid ­valve endo­car­ditis asso­ciated ­with a fis­tula ­between the ­right ­atrium and the ­aorta.
