Abstract

We presented a case of a 25-year-old female who, having suffered from hoarseness for almost one year and heart murmur, was referred under the impression of lung cancer and congenital heart disease. Anteroposterior and lateral chest X-ray showed cardiomegaly with an oval mass lesion (6cm in length)at the left hilum. Cardiac catheterization showed large atrial Septal defect with aneurysmal dilatation of pulmonary artery, which was confirmed by operation for closure of ASD. Radiographically, postoperative regression of heart size and pulmonary artery was noted clinically, and disappearance of hoarseness was noted 6 months after operation.
