Cardiovascular imaging study in the patient with SKI p.T20 K variant. a 2D transthoracic echocardiography of parasternal long axis demonstrated aortic root aneurysm with Valsalva sinuses diameter of 48.5 mm.; b and d 2D transthoracic echocardiography in apical four chamber view in diastole. Enlarged left ventricle and left atrium with increased mitral annular diameter of 51.4 mm; c contrast-enhanced, ECG-gated CT, volume rendering (VR) image, the aneurysm of the ascending aorta; d color flow Doppler study revealed significant mitral regurgitation due to thickened and floppy mitral valve leaflets and widened mitral annulus
