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.
