Duplication of mitral valve is a very rare anomaly. It is characterized by two independent mitral valve apparatuses (leaflets and annulus) and subvalvular apparatuses (chordae and papillary muscles) that function well by themselves. In this report, we present duplicate mitral valve with parachute chordal attachment and mitral stenosis in an infant. The patient was successfully treated with the reconstruction of the larger valve without any intervention to the smaller one.
