Isolation of the left subclavian artery from the pulmonary artery in a patient with CHARGE association

Congenit Anom (Kyoto). 2010 Sep;50(3):200-2. doi: 10.1111/j.1741-4520.2010.00283.x. Epub 2010 Jun 24.


A male infant diagnosed with CHARGE association presented with respiratory insufficiency and a cardiac murmur. Diagnostic evaluation showed a right sided aortic arch with an isolation of the left subclavian artery arising from the pulmonary artery through a left patent arterial duct. This is a rare cardiac disorder not previously described in patients with CHARGE association, detected with a 3D computed tomography scan, which emphasizes the importance of a thorough cardiac screening in patients with CHARGE association.
