Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (c-TGA) is a rare congenital heart disease usually diagnosed during childhood. Rarely, some patients remain undiagnosed and develop symptoms of heart failure during adulthood due to dysfunction of the left ventricle and systemic atrioventricular valve. We report on a 69-year-old male patient with a history of percutaneous coronary intervention and stent implantation for coronary artery disease and coronary artery anomaly, in whom diagnosis of c-TGA was missed.
