Description

An aortopulmonary septal defect is a rare cardiac malformation in which there is a communication between the ascending aorta and pulmonary trunk in the presence of 2 separate semilunar valves. There are reports of postnatal diagnosis of aortopulmonary septal defects in association with tetralogy of Fallot.(1-4) Prenatal diagnosis of an aortopulmonary septal defect with tetralogy of Fallot is rare. We report a case of tetralogy of Fallot and an aortopulmonary septal defect diagnosed by fetal echocardiography at 30 weeks' gestation. The diagnosis was confirmed on postnatal cross-sectional echocardiography and at surgery.
