The article discusses the case of a 25 day-old female with congestive heart failure. She underwent physical examination and found that she had dyspnea and pallor, while her chest X-ray revealed cardiomegaly and accentuated pulmonary plethora. However, the final diagnosis showed that she had congenital mitral stenosis, which occurs as an isolated malformation or in combination with additional cardiac lesions.
