Abstract

We report a case of multiple congenital anomalies in a female newborn infant, born to the mother from a hill tribe. The Doppler echocardiography of the baby showed large atrial septal defect amounting to single atrium, atretic left atrioventricular valve, large single right sided ventricle, aorta shifted to the left arising from single ventricle and diminutive hypoplastic left ventricle. Right atrioventricular valve was normal forming single inlet into the ventricle. Pulmonary artery was small and hypoplastic and no antegrade flow was observed in it. The patient was diagnosed as having single ventricle, pulmonary atresia, patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) and major aortopulmonary collateral artery (MAPCA).
