Abstract

Ebstein's Anomaly of the tricuspid valve has a variable degree of abnormality with a continuous change between mild and severe forms and, consequently, a variable clinical course. Pregnancy can also be well tolerated with a good fetal outcome. The authors present a case of a 44 year old woman with Ebstein's Anomaly of the tricuspid valve. Clinical evolution to the age of 38 and two term pregnancies in the third decade of life were well tolerated. The infants were normal and had an adequate development.
