Acute severe Aortic Regurgitation may be difficult to recognize clinically and is often spuriously diagnosed as another acute condition such as overwhelming sepsis, pneumonia, or non-valvular heart disease. Whereas cardiovascular collapse is the most obvious and common presentation of acute cardiac valvular regurgitation, findings may not be so obvious, and the clinical presentation can often be nonspecific. Echocardiography may show spontaneous rupture of aortic valve, vegetations on the aortic valve or prolapse of an aortic leaflet into the left ventricle. Doppler echocardiography is useful in detecting the presence of aortic regurgitation. A high degree of suspicion is important for rapid diagnosis, and surgical treatment should be performed as promptly as possible
