Abstract

We describe a case of protein-losing enteropathy after a Fontan operation, in the absence of high right atrial pressure. Although partial regression of protein-losing enteropathy was obtained with high doses of cortisone, complete resolution of the phenomenon was accomplished only after surgical closure of a left-to-right shunt through the pulmonary valve.
