    Abstract

    We report the case of a 44 year old man who presented with an infective endocarditis and was found to have a coarctation of the aorta associated with a sinus venosus atrial septal defect and a small ventricular septal defect. The association of coarctation with a sinus venous atrial septal defect presenting with endocarditis in an adult is extremely rare.
