Abstract

The congenital absence of the pulmonary valve cusps can occur either isolated or in association with other heart lesions. We report a very rare case of a 40-day-old infant with transposition of the great arteries, ventricular septal defect, pulmonary annular stenosis, absent pulmonary valve and aneurysmal dilation of the central pulmonary arteries, who received surgical treatment at our institution.
