Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is a rare condition in infants that occurs approximately three times per million births. It is considered incompatible with life after the ductus arteriosus closes if it is not surgically corrected. A review found 37 reported cases not identified until the patient was over the age of 18, and analysis of these cases and of our own case is reported.
