Traumatic aortic valve regurgitation is a rare complication of non penetrating blunt chest trauma which usually requires surgical management. We describe a case of a 21 year old man with blunt chest trauma who was diagnosed with aortic valve regurgitation due to rupture of the right coronary cusp one month after falling from a high place. Rupture of aortic valve cusp was treated successfully with aortic valve replacement.
