The 18q deletion syndrome is a rare genetic condition characterized by a large variability in clinical phenotype and severity. Congenital heart diseases have been described by several previous reports, most commonly including pulmonary valve anomalies and septal defects. We describe a new case of a 22-month-old boy affected by 18q del syndrome found to have a symptomatic pulmonary artery sling. This study reports a new case of pulmonary artery sling associated with 18q del syndrome, providing an alert for pediatric cardiologists about less common cardiovascular anomalies, which can easily be missed, allowing for early diagnosis and appropriate care.

Abstract

The 18q deletion syndrome is a rare genetic condition characterized by a large variability in clinical phenotype and severity. Congenital heart diseases have been described by several previous reports, most commonly including pulmonary valve anomalies and septal defects. We describe a new case of a 22-month-old boy affected by 18q del syndrome found to have a symptomatic pulmonary artery sling. This study reports a new case of pulmonary artery sling associated with 18q del syndrome, providing an alert for pediatric cardiologists about less common cardiovascular anomalies, which can easily be missed, allowing for early diagnosis and appropriate care.
