Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare cardiac abnormality. A nine-month-old male infant with the diagnosis of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries was admitted to our clinic with a history of pulmonary artery banding to train the left ventricle three months ago. On admission, he presented with bronchopneumonia, cyanosis, dyspnea, and severe biventricular heart failure associated with significant valvular regurgitation. An urgent double switch operation was performed with atrial and arterial switch procedures. Eight days of mechanical circulatory support was deemed mandatory following surgery. The patient is still under follow-up uneventfully three years after the operation.
