Partial atrioventricular septal defect (PAVSD) is one of the congenital heart diseases. Significant number of patients may be undiagnosed until older ages and reach adult life asymptomatically. Only few of those can reach adulthood without timely diagnosis and surgical correction. We report a 36 years old PAVSD case firstly diagnosed by routine echocardiography that had exertional dyspnea for one year. Because of PAVSD has long term detrimental effects on the right cardiac chambers, we proposed the operation to the patient.
