Abstract


Hemi-truncus arteriosus is a rare congenital cardiovascular malformation. It usually presents in infancy and leads to development of progressive pulmonary vascular disease, heart failure, and death. We report a case of hemi truncus arteriosus in a 12-day-old neonate who was successfully managed at our institute.
