Abstract

Cor triatriatum dexter is a rare congenital abnormality in which the right atrium is divided into two chambers by a membrane. A rare variant of cor triatriatum dexter where the membrane is attached to the left of the superior vena cava at one end and to the right of inferior vena cava and coronary sinus at the other end has been described only once before. We describe here a case of this very rare variant of cor triatriatum dexter that was diagnosed using contrast echocardiography.
