Abstract

We report two isolated and rare congenital malformations, namely double aortic arch and bronchopulmonary sequestration occurring as coexisting lesions in an infant. Clinical presentation leading up to a detailed anatomic diagnosis, using echocardiography and multidetector computerized tomographic angiographic imaging are described. To our knowledge, our patient is the second case reported with this dual pathology, making it an exceedingly rare occurrence.
