Abstract

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare and complex congenital heart disease. It essentially occurs with atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance, in which the great vessels become parallel. Cases of corrected transposition of the great arteries are more frequently associated with other cardiac anomalies. In the fetus, corrected transposition of the great arteries may not be diagnosed on obstetric cardiac ultrasound, especially in the absence of other cardiac malformations (isolated corrected transposition of the great arteries). In this manuscript, we describe a case of isolated corrected transposition of the great arteries diagnosed in utero, and highlight the clues to make this diagnosis.
