An infant with type 3e truncus arteriosus (Collett and Edwards classification) is described. The base of the anomaly is the right aortic arch, the left pulmonary artery arises from the truncus, and the right pulmonary artery originates from a ductus arteriosus. A chromosome 22q11.2 deletion was present. To our knowledge, this malformation has not been described previously. Because the pulmonary arteries were small, we performed palliative surgery twice with the Rastelli procedure.
