Abstract

It has been shown that congenital absence of the pulmonary valve rarely occurs by itself but tends to be associated with other heart defects, especially tetralogy of Fallot. Other malformations and other complex cardiac malformations also have been described in patients with absent pulmonary valve. In this report we describe the findings of a patient with this combination of cardiac defects who survived spontaneously to adulthood.
