Corrected transposition of the great arteries without associated cardiac anomalies is a rare cardiac malformation. Few patients with this anomaly survive beyond 50 years of age because of systemic ventricular dysfunction or development of AV valvular regurgitation or conduction disturbance. We describe an autopsied, uncomplicated corrected transposition of the great arteries case in which the patient died at 84 years of age. We believe this patient to be the longest surviving corrected transposition of the great arteries associated person in the world.
