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.
