Although rare, periprosthetic valvular regurgitation can cause hemolytic anemia. We present the case of a 63-year-old man who had an unusual presentation of hemolytic anemia due to periprosthetic mitral valve regurgitation (PMVR) in the presence of cold agglutinins. Due to high surgical risk, PMVR was percutaneously closed with three Amplatzer devices under the guidance of three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography.
