Aortic root abscess, aneurysm of sinus Valsalva, severe aortic valve insufficiency, and a fragile aortic wall caused by infective endocarditis were found in a 10-year-old child. Aortic valve replacement was intended as a preoperative strategy, but one of modifications of Cabrol had to be used urgently because of aortic root rupture between right atrial and aortic connection just after pericardiotomy.
