A 14-year-old boy with a 9 month history of rheumatic symptoms was found to have hemodynamically significant aortic regurgitation in association with an HLA-B27 associated spondyloarthropathy (SpA). Valvular incompetence due to aortitis can occur early in the clinical course of pediatric patients with SpA, and careful cardiac monitoring is warranted.
