We report an unusual case of total anomalous pulmonary venous drainage (TAPVD), who was successfully treated by surgery at the age of 56 years. We believe that this is the oldest person in the English literature to undergo surgical correction of TAPVD. The pathophysiology and factors for prolonged survival are further discussed.
