We report a case of isolated congenital tricuspid regurgitation caused by a cleft in the anterior tricuspid leaflet associated with a patent foramen ovale. Preoperative echocardiography revealed severe tricuspid regurgitation resulting from anterior tricuspid leaflet prolapse. The patient underwent successful tricuspid valve repair with simple cleft suture and annuloplasty and direct closure of the patent foramen ovale.
