Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection is an uncommon congenital heart malformation with abnormal drainage of all pulmonary veins into the systemic venous system. Despite its very low incidence, it is usually a pediatric cardiac emergency and rarely allows survival into adulthood without surgical correction in infancy. Herein, we report one of the oldest cases from Turkey who was successfully operated for non-obstructive, supracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection.
