The presence of interatrial communication is considered obligatory in total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC). Even a restriction in this communication leads to obstructive TAPVC. We report a rare case of obstructed supracardiac TAPVC with the absence of interatrial communication and with multiple ventricle septal defects (VSDs) in a 3-month-old child.
