Abstract

Cor triatriatum (CT) is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly that usually becomes symptomatic in the first years of life. If the condition is not associated with other cardiac defects, and depending on the degree of communication between the upper chamber and left atrium (LA), patients may reach adulthood. We report a case of an asymptomatic, adult, female patient with CT diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) and followed-up during pregnancy.
