Ebstein anomaly

Case contributed by Dr Maxime St-Amant

Chest radiographs

Chest x-ray shows an important cardiomegaly with regards mainly to the right heart. The heart is shaped a little bit like a box, which suggests Ebstein's anomaly in a young patient.


Cariac MRI

MRI confirms low positioning of the tricuspid valve. Extreme dilatation of the right atrium with significant dilatation of the right ventricle. The findings are compatible with a severe form of Ebstein's anomaly.
