Here we report a bedside case discussion of a young patient with multivalvular heart disease who presented with dyspnea, palpitations, abdomen distension, yellow eyes, and pedal edema. There were an irregular pulse, engorged neck veins, systolic murmurs in the apex and parasternal areas, and a diastolic parasternal murmur. The diagnosis of multivalvular disease is discussed based on the history and clinical findings. The help of the electrocardiogram, X-ray, and echocardiography in arriving at the diagnosis is also discussed in this bedside case discussion for students.
