Abstract

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance. We report a case of new-onset heart failure in a 69-year-old female in whom cardiac CT demonstrated ccTGA without the associated cardiovascular anomalies. In this case, cardiac CT was useful for elucidating the rare and unexpected congenital etiologies of abrupt-onset heart failure in an old patient by the simultaneous evaluation of cardiac morphology and function as a single study (inserted).
