Abstract

The corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly characterised by atrio-ventricular and ventriculo-arterial discordance and is related to the largest incidence of cardiological complications. We report on a 40-year-old woman with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, situs inversus, atrial septal defect, pulmonary stenosis, right arcus aorta and coronary artery anomalies.
