A different symptom due to mitral valve stenosis: Back pain

Ali Kemal Gur1, Vural Polat1

The most significant parameter that comes forth among symptoms affiliated with mitral stenosis is a chronic increase in the left atrium pressure. The very first symptom is effort dyspnea. Other symptoms may include fatigue, chronic coughing due to enlargement of the left atrium, hemoptysis, orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, tiredness, symptoms related with right cardiac failure and pulmoner edema. In our case, we present a very different symptom which accompanies these symptoms: back pain. Severe mitral stenosis was determined with echocardiography in patient. We assume that, back pain may have disappeared after mitral replacement and which makes us think that back pain had originated from the calcified thrombosis which completely covered the left atrium base and the atrium wall.
