Mitral atresia is a rare congenital heart defect when compared to atresia of other valves and it is often associated with other cardiac malformation such as patent ductus arteriosus, coarctation of the aorta, transposition of the great arteries, pulmonary stenosis, shunt defects, cor triatriatum, chamber, and valvular anomalies. There have been few reports of mitral atresia, therefore, the case of a 5-month-old male child with complaint of difficulty with breathing and echocardiographic diagnosis of atretic mitral valves, atrial septal defect of 15 mms, ventricular septal defect (VSD) of 10 mms and hypoplastic left ventricle is reported.
