Abstract

© The Author(s) 2021.The association of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) with aortopulmonary window (APW) is extremely rare. The coexistence of these two anomalies will have implications on clinical presentation, diagnosis, and pathophysiology. The lungs are exposed to pulmonary venous hypertension due to obstructed TAPVC as well as pulmonary arterial hypertension due to unrestrictive APW. We describe successful management of this unusual association in a three-month-old child.
