We report a case of interventricular septal hematoma after patch closure of a perimembranous ventricular septal defect in a 4-month-old infant. On postoperative day 1, echocardiography showed a voluminous intramural hematoma causing severe thickening of the ventricular septum. Surgical revision was necessary immediately to drain the hematoma.
