Abstract

We encountered two brothers with a combination of Barlow's disease and bilateral axillary artery aneurysms who were operated on during their third decade of life. A symmetrical form of true bilateral axillary artery aneurysms is uncommon. Recurrent mitral regurgitation was presented in the older brother with an endocardial defect in the left atrium, suggesting connective tissue fragility. A hereditary connective tissue disorder was strongly suspected because of the similar presentation and an unusual cluster of pathologies in siblings. Careful follow-up is required to detect recurrence of mitral regurgitation or aneurysm formation in other vessels.
