Abstract

Abstract We have reported a case of congenital heart disease, the tetralogy of Fallot, in a man past 49 years of age who was active and self-supporting until his terminal illness. As far as we can determine, he is the second oldest patient known (autopsy) to have this disease. Death was due to sepsis following furunculosis of the nose and cavernous sinus thrombosis. In the terminal sepsis there were crossed or paradoxical emboli which passed through the septal defect.
