Rheumatic fever (RF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD) are major health hazards in developing countries. Affection with RF-RHD in preschool years is uncommon, but prognostically worse as management is technically difficult. We report a rare early presentation of rheumatic valve disease in a 2-year-old child. This is probably the youngest case of rheumatic mitral obstruction documented in literature till date. It highlights that RF-RHD is still a very prevalent disease in India yet is underdiagnosed and underreported.
