We report the prenatal diagnosis of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the portal system in a 20-week fetus with right atrial isomerism. The apex of the fetal heart pointed to the left, the fetal stomach was on the right, there was a common atrioventricular valve, the left ventricle was small and the abdominal aorta and inferior vena cava were on the left side; all these features were suggestive of right atrial isomerism. An anomalous vein was connected to the portal vein which ascended above the diaphragm and ended in a confluence of pulmonary veins, posterior to the common atrium. Color Doppler imaging helped confirm the diagnosis of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection. The prenatal findings were confirmed on autopsy.
