Lakshmi A, Sreelatha S, Sumayya Sana, Shruthi

Inter Atrial Septal Aneurysm is an uncommon condition with presentation varying from asymptomatic to supraventricular arrhythmias, cryptogenic stroke in the young [1]. It can present as an isolated anomaly or be associated with a number of other anomalies including Patent Foramen Ovale and Mitral Valve Prolapse [2]. We are reporting a case of 25 years old G2P1L1, at 29 weeks of gestation who presented with fatigue, breathlessness and palpitations. On examination there was tachycardia and echocardiography showed aneurysmal interatrial septum. Multidisciplinary team management was initiated during pregnancy and managed till delivery which occurred uneventfully. Conclusion: Regular follow-up with echocardiography along with multidisciplinary approach is the cornerstone to prevent complications and maternal morbidity in such cases.
