Population of adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) has increased over the years; double discordance is an anatomically complex condition that accounts for 0.5 to 1% of congenital heart disease. We report the case of a 27-year-old patient, primigravida, presenting for elective caesarean section for intrauterine growth retardation, whose pre-anaesthetic evaluation revealed a corrected great vessel transposition. We review the continuous spinal anesthesia during cesarean section in a pregnant patient with incidental discovery of congenital heart disease.
