A heart murmur was detected in an 18-month-old girl six months ago. An echocardiography revealed an atrial septal defect (ASD), a ventricular septal defect (VSD), an overriding aorta, a persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC), an anomalous pulmonary venous connection (APVC), and pulmonary hypertension. A cardiac CT examination was requested to specify the diagnosis and type of APVC as well as to demonstrate the complex anatomical structures of the heart.
