ABSTRACT
Postmortem examination revealed a severe Ebstein's anomaly in a 66 year old woman with Stokes-Adams syndrome associated with complete heart block and fatal ventricular arrhythmias. Inability to pace the ventricle effectively was probably related to the bizarre deformity of the tricuspid valve and marked �atrialization� of most of the inflow portion of the right ventricle. The association of Ebstein's anomaly and symptomatic complete heart block in an elderly woman is unique.
