A 63-year-old male presented with a 6-month history of worsening exertional dyspnea and was found to have three-vessel coronary artery disease. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed a filamentous structure attached to the anterior mitral valve leaflet, which was confirmed during surgery as filamentous network. To our knowledge, this is the first report to describe such a network attached to the mitral valve.
