Isolated right ventricular hypoplasia is a rare congenital anomaly. This condition is usually associated with a communication between the atria in the form of a patent foramen ovale or secondum atrial septal defect. We describe a familial occurrence of this rare disease. A 1-day-old male child and his 34-year-old father were found to have isolated right ventricular hypoplasia with atrial septal defect. An autosomal dominant mode of inheritance is likely for this rare congenital anomaly. (C) 2000 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
