BECAUSE of continued improvement in the efficiency of the surgical approach to the treatment of congenital heart disease, it has become increasingly important to recognize the various types of congenital heart disease. Understanding can be advanced and more adequate methods for the treatment of congenital cardiac abnormalities can be developed only through the observation of variations of the already familiar basic patterns of congenital heart disease. Thus, we consider it worth while to describe a case of an anomalous cardiac condition showing additional minor valvular developmental abnormalities which combine to produce a situation not previously reported in the literature.
