In this article, we present a-16-year-old female case of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries. The patient had atrial and visceral situs inversus with dextrocardia, and also ventricular septal defect with pulmonary stenosis. Presenting symptoms were cyanosis and dyspnea on exertion. The ventricular septal defect was closed through the left-sided morphological right atrium across the mitral valve. The surgeon operated from the left side of the patient. The pulmonary artery was augmented with a pericardial patch.
