Abstract

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) is an uncommon condition. Few patients survive past 50 years of age, because of associated congenital defects, systemic (morphological right) ventricular dysfunction, atrioventricular valvular insufficiency or complete heart block. A unique case is presented of exercise-induced ventricular tachycardia, which led to the diagnosis of CCTGA, without atrioventricular block or other cardiac anomalies.
