Ebstein's anamoly is a rare congenital heart defect comprising less than 1% of patients with congenital heart disease. Among the congenital heart lesions, Ebstein's anamoly is one of the most diverse in presentation, severity and management. Even though pregnancy in women with Ebstein's anamoly is usually well-tolerated, they are at increased risk of developing ventricular and supraventricular tachycardias, congestive cardiac failure, sudden collapse and even death. Here, we report a case of the pregnant woman with mild pre-eclampsia, known case of Ebstein's anamoly posted for emergency caesarean section.
