Noonan syndrome is a rare disorder in which different cardiac abnormalities can exist. This report describes the combination of cardiac abnormalities in a patient with Noonan syndrome, which has not been reported previously. Coexisting cardiac abnormalities were: atrial septal defect, atrial fibrillation and noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium. Surgical fenestrated closure of atrial septal defect and concomitant maze procedure were performed. Surgery of congenital heart defects in syndromic patients has different difficulties than those in nonsyndromic patients. Thus, specific approach should be taken in these patients.
