Abstract

Anomalous origin of one pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta is a rare congenital anomaly. Even more rarely reported is its presence in conjunction with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN). We present a case of a full-term infant, initially thought to have PPHN and later found to have anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta. We discuss our management concept which included use of PgE1 infusion to restore fetal circulation prior to surgical treatment in this unique clinical scenario.
