Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Unilateral pulmonary vein atresia is a rare congenital heart disease. Its symptoms begin to manifest in childhood and may be similar to those of other left-side heart obstructions. The diagnosis of this disorder is difficult and usually requires several imaging methods. This report presents the case of a 7-year-old girl whose diagnosis was aided through the use of multislice computed tomography.
