Transposition of the great arteries with an intact ventricular septum and aortopulmonary window is an extremely rare anatomic combination associated with high morbidity and mortality. We report a case of a 24days neonate with dextro-transposition of the great arteries with intact ventricular septum and a large aortopulmonary window as a mechanism of inter-circulatory mixing.
