Abstract

Ellis-Van Creveld (EVC) syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder. Around 150 cases are described in published literature and in Bangladesh, it is even rare.  The patient usually comes with short stature, dental deformity, and cardiac deformity. Here, we present the case of a patient with ostium primum atrial septal defect (ASD) with moderate mitral regurgitation who underwent surgical repair of ASD and mitral valve replacement.
