    Abstract

    © Cambridge University Press 2015. A 14-year-old boy presented to us with a diagnosis of severe asthma and oxygen desaturation of 76% on a 6-minute-walk test. A contrast echocardiogram revealed echocontrast in the left and right atria simultaneously. A secundum atrial septal defect and partial cor triatriatum dexter were diagnosed, and the atrial defect was closed by cardiac catheterisation.
