Abstract

Coarctation of the aorta is a common congenital defect whose overall incidence is 5–8% of all congenital cardiac anomalies. Associated cardiac anomalies have been well described in previous studies examining specific subgroups of coarctation of aorta patients, particularly infants, excluding older children, adolescents, and adults. The association of coarctation with left-sided obstructive lesions ( Bicuspid aortic valve, Parachute mitral valve, Mitral atresia, Aortic atresia ) were well documented in the literature. The association of coarctation of aorta with right- sided obstructive lesions is rare and a hemodyanamic explanation based on fetal flow pattern was given for this. Herein we report a case of coarctation of aorta with right sided obstructive lesion in form of supravalvular pulmonary stenosis in an adult female. To the best of our knowledge this is the first case report where an adult female presented with coarctation of aorta along with supravalvular pulmonary stenosis.
