There is a gradually growing interest in the subject of congenital heart diseases as many children born with them are now growing into adulthood. The reasons are twofold: increasing awareness among clinicians as well as major advances in the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart diseases in children. A case of Ebstein's anomaly (EA), one of the most important congenital diseases of the tricuspid valve, in an 80 year old woman referred to the cardiology clinic of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital in Benin City, Nigeria, is hereby reported. It is a rare condition. The features demonstrated in this case report tend to suggest that there may be several adult survivors of congenital heart diseases. These may coexist with other systemic illnesses such as systemic hypertension.
