Gerbode defect, a left ventricle to right atrium (LV-RA) communication, is usually congenital. Acquired LV-RA communications are rare and only few case reports of successful trans-catheter closure have been published though none of them were on infants. We hereby report a rare case of LV to RA shunt acquired following surgical repair of Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). The defect was successfully closed percutaneously with an Amplatzer duct occluder. This is the first reported case of device closure of an acquired Gerbode defect in an infant.
