Summary– Kabuki syndrome is a rare congenital malformation syndrome characterized by mental retardation, skeletal deformities, auditory dysfunction, cardiac defects, and distinctive facial appearance. Although complex cardiovascular malformations present in early childhood, rarely, atrioventricular septal defects may also present in young adults. Presently described is case of a 22-year-old female with KS who presented with ostium secundum atrial septal defect with deficient rim and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. In this case, minimally invasive robotic surgery was preferred for closure of atrial septal defect.

Keywords: Atrial septal defect, Kabuki syndrome, robotic surgery.
