Description

We describe the prenatal diagnosis of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) at 27 weeks' gestation in a patient with Fryns with the right upper pulmonary vein to the right superior vena cava and right atrial junction. The remaining pulmonary veins were connected to the left atrium. The pulsed Doppler pattern at the site of the anomalous connection was suggestive of a pulmonary vein. The fetus had associated other anomalies in the form of cystic hygroma, a single umbilical artery, and an absent left kidney. The cardiac diagnosis was confirmed on postnatal echocardiography. Postnatal diagnosis of Fryns syndrome was made.
