Abstract
Cardiac arrhythmias rarely complicate congenital heart disease in not operated adult. We report a case of cardiac malposition revealed by a supraventricular tachycardia. The clinical symptoms were dominated by recurrent palpitations. Attention was captivated by lack of cardiac activity in left chest part. Chest x-ray showed dextrocardia with cardiac apex and aortic arch on the right side. The electrocardiogram showed narrow QRS tachycardia responding to sinocarotid massage. Echocardiography revealed situs inversus with atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial concordance.

Keywords
