Abstract

We present a rare case of left ventricular to right atrial communication, a Gerbode type defect discovered in an adult female, originally misinterpreted as pulmonary arterial hypertension. The case report will be followed by the review of the literature and a discussion about how to prevent echocardiographic misinterpretation of this defect as pulmonary arterial hypertension using careful echocardiographic examination.
