ABSTRACT

The median survival of patients with truncus arteriosus is five weeks of age with rare cases reaching adulthood. The longest reported survivor with balanced ventricles, as the index case has, is 38 years of age. The index case is a 46-year old male with Type 3 truncus arteriosus. His case has never been documented in the English Literature as far as the author is aware.
