A seven-day-old neonate presented with respiratory distress and an early diagnosis was achieved through the echocardiographic studies which successfully visualized an anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery arising from the ascending aorta. Subsequently a surgical correction with direct anastomosis of the right pulmonary artery to the main pulmonary trunk was accomplished in the neonatal period. The English literature in the last two decades is reviewed to discuss the characteristics, the diagnosis and treatment of neonatal cases with anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery arising from the ascending aorta.
