Abstract

Cardiac anomalies are usually diagnosed early in life, which is particularly true for their various combinations. The diagnosis in adulthood is rare. Here we report the case of a young man with an aortic coarctation corrected at the age of 16, however the associated stenotic bicuspid aortic valve and cor triatriatum sinistrum were corrected after Streptococcus viridans endocarditis 7 years later.
