Abstract

A 6-month-old male infant with coexistent type B interrupted aortic arch, distal aortopulmonary window, and anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery arising from the ascending aorta was diagnosed by two-dimensional echocardiography, color Doppler, and cardiac catheterization. Review of the available literature reveals this patient to be the fourteenth reported case of this unusual association of cardiovascular defects.
