Big pulmonary artery-left atrial fistula malformation (PALAF) was diagnosed in a 5-year-old boy. Although transcatheter therapy would be preferred as a treatment of PALAF, the lesion, which was 20 mm in diameter and almost totally shunting the right main pulmonary artery, it was decided to treat by surgical approach.
