Shone's complex is characterized by multiple left-sided heart anomalies leading to blood flow blockages. Misdiagnoses are common, making treatment decisions challenging. Transthoracic echocardiogram with Doppler can be implemented for the diagnosis. The treatment is based on surgical correction, and the prognosis depends on the severity of the condition and the timing of intervention. We present a case of a patient with Shone’s complex who experienced acute pulmonary edema as a complication. Surgical correction was performed, but the patient was lost in follow-up, he later presented to the emergency service with acute dyspnea and palpitations. Further surgical intervention was undertaken.
