Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries

Discussion:

This is a diagnosed case of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, which is a rare anomaly that comprises less than 1% of all congenital heart diseases 1-2. In this anomaly, there is atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance (double discordance) wherein the right atrium communicates with the morphologic left ventricle, which gives rise to the pulmonary artery, while the left atrium communicates with the morphologic right ventricle, which gives rise to the aorta. The blood flows in the normal direction but passes through the wrong ventricular chambers.
