Ebstein's anomaly is a congenital heart defect. The septal and posterior leaflets of the tricuspid valve are displaced toward the apex of the right ventricle called as atrailazation of right ventricle. Most of them have interatrial communication. Ebstein's anomaly accounts for <1% of all cases of congenital heart disease. It has a high mortality rate in first few months of life and rare patients with Ebstein's anomaly live >70 years. A 70-year-old male presented with dyspnea on exertion was a case of Ebstein's anomaly with the late presentation in seventh decade of life.
