Baby had mild cyanosis (SpO2 in room air = 84%) with systemic examination findings being unremarkable. Chest radiograph showed rounded opacity in right lower lung field (Figure 1). Echocardiography done with Phillips iE-33 with broad band transducer at our centre revealed small muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD), small patend ductus arteriosus (PDA) with left to right shunt....
