In this study, we report a patient with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA/IVS), confluent pulmonary arteries supplied by an arterial duct, and chromosome 22q11.2 microdeletion. The 22q11.2 deletion syndrome has been associated with anomalies of the outflow tracts, such as tetralogy of Fallot with either pulmonary stenosis or atresia, but we are aware of a solitary case described with pulmonary atresia when the ventricular septum is intact. The presence of genetic malformations can have long-term co-morbidities. By describing our patient, we aim to create awareness of this rare association.
