A 32-year-old woman referred to our center because of dyspnea on exertion (functional class III). Physical examination revealed a faint systolic murmur, and the electrocardiogram showed a tall R in the right precordial leads. Chest X-ray demonstrated cardiomegaly, prominent pulmonary knob, and mild pulmonary congestion. She had given birth to two children and had experienced mild symptoms during the pregnancies.
