ABSTRACT
The article describes the case of a 58-year-old man diagnosed with sinus venosus atrial septal defect (ASD) through chest radiography and enhanced chest computed tomography (CT). The patient had an open fracture in his left ankle due to an accident and suffered chest and leg pain. He had an increased central pulmonary vascularity and two anomalous pulmonary veins based on chest radiographic and CT findings. A discussion on ASD, which is said to be one of the most common causes of congenital heart disease in adults, is provided.
