Two neonates with the most severe form of persistent fetal circulation are described. Their presentation mimicked severe congenital heart disease. As well as persistent pulmonary hypertension and right-to-left shunting through the ductus arteriosus, they had poor myocardial contractility and atrioventricular valve regurgitation. Associated acidaemia was extreme. They survived with medical management, and the functional abnormalities resolved.
