Cor triatriatum is a rare cardiac anomaly characterized by a membrane in the left atrium that separates the atrium into the proximal and distal chambers. Herein, we describe an unusual case of cor triatriatum combined with a ventricular septal defect in a newborn infant with a giant omphalocele and underwent a successful cardiac surgical repair. In this abnormality, there is a high incidence of associated congenital abnormalities; but to the best of our knowledge, this is the first time that a combination of cor triatriatum and omphalocele has been reported in the literature.
