Abstract

We describe the case of an adult who developed protein-losing enteropathy 21 years after having undergone a Fontan procedure. Investigations revealed iron deficiency anemia which was treated with intravenous iron sucrose leading to resolution of both the anemia as well as symptoms of protein-losing enteropathy.
