Double aortic arch with patent ductus arteriosus and atrial septal defect is an uncommon association. Such complex cardiac lesions may complicate an otherwise normal anesthetic course. We came across a case with aqueductal stenosis and hydrocephalus, scheduled for ventriculo-peritoneal shunt surgery, on an emergent basis. The child was managed successfully. The anesthetic implications of resultant left-to-right shunt with increased intracranial pressure have been described.
