Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is one of the most common congenital heart malformations comprising a ventricular septal defect, right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, right ventricular hypertrophy, and overriding aorta. A rare variant includes pulmonary atresia and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries. Altered hemodynamics within the functional single-ventricle results in turbulent flow and predisposes to endocardial vegetation formation which may consequently lead to thromboembolic events. We present a rare case of an adult survivor of uncorrected TOF with pulmonary atresia.
