Abstract

Most of the time atrial septal defects (ASD) are sporadic. Familial forms are characterised by the same type of the ASD, and are frequently associated by other cardiac, osteoarticular (Holt-Oram syndrome) or atrioventricular conductions abnormalities (ostium secundum ASD with prolonged PR, sinus venosus ASD with sinusal bradyarrhythmia). This report describes a family in which the father and his two children present an ASD, each one of a different type (ostium primum ASD, ostium secundum ASD, sinus venosus ASD), without any other associated malformations. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a family in which three different ASD types are present.
