Isolated congenital tricuspid valve dysplasia is a rare and potentially lethal congenital heart disease that can be easily confused with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn. We describe a neonate with isolated congenital tricuspid valve dysplasia who did not respond to mechanical ventilation but improved by tolazoline. Clinicians should be aware that the initial fulminant course of this condition may be reversed by reducing the pulmonary vascular resistance, thereby allowing time for spontaneous recovery.
