Abstract

This report describes the case of a neonate who underwent fetal surgery for congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and pulmonary sequestration. His postnatal management was complicated by the additional diagnosis of transposition of the great arteries (TGA). TGA is particularly difficult to diagnose in the fetus. This triad has not previously been documented in the literature. Clinicians should have a high index of suspicion for associated anomalies, especially cardiac, when evaluating and counseling a pregnancy complicated by CDH.
