Raghib's syndrome is characterized by the combination of abnormal drainage from the left superior vena cava into the left atrium, the presence of an atrial septal defect, and the absence of a coronary sinus. Although surgical repair of Raghib's syndrome is often indicated, its correction in combination with partial endocardial cushion defect is extremely rare. In this article, we present a 24-year-old female patient with partial endocardial cushion defect accompanied by Raghib's syndrome who was corrected successfully with surgery.
