Abstract

This case report describes a rare disorder of a left pulmonary artery interruption with concurrent coarctation of the right pulmonary artery in a dog. A 5-year-old, male neutered, mixed-breed dog presented for evaluation of an asymptomatic heart murmur. Echocardiography and computed tomography revealed complete interruption of the proximal left pulmonary artery and coarctation of the right pulmonary artery. Collateral circulation to the left lung field was provided by a dilated bronchoesophageal artery with evidence of left pulmonary hypoplasia. Pulmonary artery interruption and coarctation is rarely reported in the veterinary literature.
