Abstract

We report five children affected with cervical aortic arch associated with tetralogy of Fallot (2), pulmonary atresia with interventricular septal defect (2) and pulmonary branch stenosis (1). Their ages were between one day and three months when they were diagnosed. With regard to one patient, the diagnosis was clinically suspected before catheterism. In four patients it was an angiographic finding since they didn't present the clinical signs when they underwent catheterism. One of these four patients showed such signs later. Only two cases can be inserted in Haughton classification; the other three can be included in the "unclassified group". Children's present clinical conditions are independent from this very rare anomaly and they depend on the associated heart malformations.
