Abstract
The anomaly consisting of one pulmonary artery arising from the ascending aorta while the other originates normally from the right ventricle is a rare congenital malformation. Early surgery is desirable to prevent pulmonary vascular obstructive disease. The autoors experienced a patient of right pulmonary artery arising from ascending aorta who had severe respiratory distress. Echocardiographic study and autopsy findings showed anomalous origin of right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta, patent ductus arteriosus, patient foramen ovale, and severe right ventricular hypertrophy.
Key Words: Anomalous origin of right pulmonary artery
