Abstract

Ebstein's anomaly of the tricuspid valve is a rare lesion comprising less than 1% of patients with congenital heart disease. Among congenital heart lesions, Ebstein's anomaly is one of the most diverse in presentation, severity, and management. In its most severe form, it is also one of the most lethal. In this article we present a case of a patient who developed cardiac symptoms in adulthood. We follow this with a review of the pathology, clinical presentation, evaluation, and management of Ebstein's anomaly.
