Keywords: Pulmonary hypertension, right atrial dilatation


Severe enlargement of the atrium usually happens within the left atrium and is rarely seen in the right atrium. Giant right atrium is a rare condition that can be seen in tricuspid valve pathologies. Pulmonary hypertension, which could develop after tricuspid valve stenosis or insufficiency, may lead to giant right atrium in adults. A 45-year-old female patient was operated for tricuspid valve insufficiency related to a giant right atrium.
