A 3-day-old neonate with severe central cyanosis was found to have a right to left shunt across a secundum atrial septal defect, due to prominence of the Eustachian valve. Two-dimensional echocardiography with Doppler and color Doppler allowed a precise morphological and pathophysiological diagnosis. Cardiac catheterization and angiocardiography confirmed the diagnosis. The patient is asymptomatic 12 months after surgical excision of the Eustachian valve and closure of the atrial septal defect, performed at two months of age.
