Absent pulmonary valve syndrome (APVS) is a rare congenital cardiac malformation characterized by absent, dysplastic, or rudimentary pulmonary valve leaflets in association with other cardiac anomalies. It has an incidence of 3-6% in cases of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) and 0.2-0.4% of live-born infants with congenital heart disease (CHD). Absent pulmonary valve leads to dilated main pulmonary artery; presenting as a pulsatile, paracardiac cystic lesion on antenatal ultrasound (USG). We report a case of this rare anomaly in association with ventricular septal defect (VSD), TOF, and left axis deviation of heart detected at 23 weeks of gestation.
