An Unusual Cardiac Anomaly: Ebstein-like Malformation


E BSTEIN’S ANOMALY, FIRST DESCRIBED in 1866, is relatively rare. It is a downward displacement of the tricuspid (right atrioventricular) valve below its annulus, dividing the right heart into a relatively large atrium and a small, at times functionless, right ventricle. The foramen ovale is usually patent and there may be other intracardiac anomalies.” We are describing a similar lesion involving the left atrioventricular valve, seen in an adult who seemed to have dextrocardia.
