Case report

This is a case of a 30-year-old woman, G2P1, who was referred to our antenatal unit at 26 weeks of gestation. She had non-contributive personal and family history.

Our ultrasound examination revealed enlarged right atrium with tricuspid regurgitation. We did not detect any other abnormalities.
