Abstract

A 17-month-old female patient was operated on for ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis. During the operation several cardiac anomalies were observed; these were dextrocardia, ventricular septal defect, persistent left superior vena cava, drainage of the great cardiac vein into the left internal thoracic vein and a pericardial pouch. These anomalies have not previously been reported together.
