We describe a rare instance of isolated pulmonary regurgitation caused by a dysplastic pulmonary valve which was detected prenatally. Fetal echocardiography demonstrated severe pulmonary regurgitation, and progressive cardiomegaly because of right ventricular volume overload. After birth, conservative therapy was successful in alleviating the pulmonary vascular resistance, and the pulmonary regurgitation gradually decreased.
