Abstract

Persistent fifth aortic arch (PFAA) is an uncommon congenital anomaly often occurring in conjunction with other structural cardiac lesions. Diagnosis has traditionally been made by angiography or CT angiography/cardiac MRI. Recently, it has been suggested that this diagnosis can accurately be made by echocardiography. We present a case of a PFAA diagnosed by echocardiography in an infant with plate-like pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum.
