A 5-week-old infant presented with signs of severe congestive heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. Injection of technetium-99m pertechnetate demonstrated anomalous perfusion of the right lung. Subsequently, anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta was proven at cardiac catheterization and repaired. Repeat injection of radionuclide 1 week postoperatively demonstrated normal flow to the right lung.
