We present an interesting and complex congenital abnormality called Shone’s syndrome, which is quite rare and demands multidisciplinary approach in order for these patients to survive to adult life as well as careful follow up and decision making. This specific case apart from its educative character, could trouble our minds and make us consider some parameters of life better, before we lead our patients to indicative treatments. Our patient had all the typical characteristics of Shone ’s syndrome, which had already been diagnosed and surgically treated at early age and was hospitalized at our department due to symptoms of heart failure.
