Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most common syanotic heart defect, with well-known pathophysiology. Although total correction operations have excellent outcomes, palliative shunt procedures may be necessary in some situations. Despite the common use of total correction procedures, residual obstruction may develop in the long-term. Accurate diagnosis is essential for approppriate treatment. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging provides reliable and comprehensive information about the nature of congenital heart defects. In this case report, we presented a woman who underwent reoperation for right ventricular outflow tract obstruction detected during pregnancy 28 years after total correction surgery of TOF.
