Abstract

Criss-cross heart is an extremely rare anomaly, characterized by an abnormal rotation of the ventricular mass along its major axis that is the apical part twists about t heir long axes while the base of the heart and the atrio-ventricular (AV) valves remains fi xed. Due to the complex structural changes and rarity of the anomaly, the rotation of ventricular axis is often misdiagnosed. Though associated with multitudes of ventriculo-arterial discordances; we report an extremely rare case of criss-cross heart presented in late infancy associated with Taussig-Bing anomaly which has never been reported earlier in the literature to the best of our knowledge.
