Description

Prenatal diagnosis of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) is rare. We describe a case in which the diagnosis was made at 24 weeks' gestation. The fetus had a double-outlet right ventricle, mitral atresia, a subaortic ventricular septal defect, and normally related great arteries with valvar pulmonary atresia. There was PAPVC of the left pulmonary veins to an enlarged coronary sinus. The different pulsed Doppler patterns in the individual right and left pulmonary veins allowed us to make the correct diagnosis of the PAPVC. There were multiple other congenital anomalies with intrauterine growth restriction and polyhydramnios. In utero death occurred at 38 weeks' gestation, and the cardiac diagnosis was confirmed on postmortem examination. Postmortem chromosomal analysis revealed trisomy 18.
