Congenital coronary artery fistula is a rare cause of congestive heart failure in the newborn. A two-day-old girl with a continuous precordial murmur and tachycardia was referred to our clinics. An echocardiographic study revealed a large and aneurysmatic right ventricle, a giant left coronary artery to right ventricular fistula, atrial septal defect and interatrial septal aneurysm. Cardiac catheterization had been planned, but the patient was not survived because of severe heart failure and septisemia.
