Congenital pulmonary venous stenosis is a rare condition leads to progressive pulmonary hypertension and heart failure. It may be isolated or associated with other cardiac malformations. The condition ranges from hypoplasia of individual pulmonary veins to constriction of the intima of the venoatrial junction. We present a case of congenital PVS involving 4 pulmonary veins combined with severe valvular and subvalvular aortic stenoses.
