Abstract

We report the surgical case of an eight-year-old girl who had a very rare combination of ventricular septal defect and abnormal aortic arch anatomy: right cervical aortic arch, left descending aorta and Kommerell's diverticulum from which the left subclavian artery arose with anomalous subaortic left brachiocephalic vein. She was confirmed the chromosomal 22q11.2 deletion.
