Aorto-right atrial tunnel (ARAT) is a rare clinical entity. Although it is a benign finding in most cases; it can present with significant right ventricular volume overload and congestive heart failure. This report describes the first fetal diagnosis of congenital aorto-right atrial tunnel and successful management of the heart failure by surgical intervention.
