Here, we delineated a case of 19-year-old young Bangladeshi - Bengali male who presenting with brain abscess, an unusual presentation of cyanotic complex congenital heart disease. This case report focuses not only on the unusual presentation of congenital heart disease but also emphasizes the importance of early recognition of neurological complication for referal management.
