Case report

A 31-year old woman (G4P1) presented to our center at 12 weeks of pregnancy. Her family history was unremarkable and biochemical screening in the first trimester was normal (PAPP-A -0,93 MoM, Beta-hCG-0,56 MoM). 

Our initial ultrasonographic examination raised suspicion of a congenital heart defect. Anatomical changes of the ventricles and major vessels were similar to those seen in tetralogy of Fallot.
