Abstract

The case records, cardiac catheterization and angiographic findings in 32 patients were reviewed to illustrate the high incidence of pulmonary artery stenosis in congenital rubella syndrome. These interesting lesions often are of equivocal or unknown clinical significance compared with the other malformations that beset these patients, but to know of them explains certain physical findings and to study their incidence is an unusual opportunity to pinpoint a definite cause for a congenital cardiac lesion.
