Abstract

A case of ectopia cordis cervicalis is reported; it seems to be the seventh one in the available literature. It concerns a completely ectopic cor biloculare with a truncus arteriosus persistens, located above the apertura thoracis superior, being covered by soft tissue. A survey of the cases cited in the available literature since 1712 is given.
