Summary– Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare abnormality accounting for approximately 1% of clinically apparent congenital heart disease. Age at time of diagnosis and survival rate vary and depend on associated anomalies, including pulmonary stenosis, ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect, atrioventricular block, and atrioventricular valve regurgitation. Reported cases of corrected transposition of the great arteries with single coronary ostium anomaly and atrial septal defect are very rare. Described in the present report is the case of a 55-year-old male who presented with acute inferior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction and coincidental single coronary ostium arising from the right sinus of Valsalva, as observed on coronary angiography. Successful balloon angioplasty and stenting of the circumflex artery were performed. Echocardiography demonstrated the corrected transposition of the great arteries with negative contrast enhancement between the atrial chambers. The patient was discharged with medical therapy on the eighth postoperative day. To our knowledge, the present is the first report to describe corrected transposition of the great arteries, atrial septal defect, single coronary ostium, and acute myocardial infarction as comorbidities.

Keywords: Acute myocardial infarction, atrial septal defect, corrected transposition of great arteries.
