Although coarctation of the aorta is frequently diagnosed and treated in childhood, some cases are unable to be diagnosed until adulthood. Rarely, additional cardiovascular problems may accompany coarctation of the aorta in patients with genetic disturbances such as Williams syndrome. Herein, we report a case who presented to emergency service with symptoms of congestive heart failure and atrial fibrillation and underwent early, one-step surgery for severe mitral valve regurgitation and coarctation of the aorta after cardiac compensation. Genetic study confirmed the diagnosis of Williams syndrome.
