Trans-catheter closure of RPA to LA fistula by duct occluder device

Right pulmonary artery (RPA) to left atrium (LA) fistula is a rare variant of pulmonary arteriovenous fistula (PAVF) which can cause central cyanosis. We are reporting a case with central cyanosis with structurally normal heart on 2-dimensional (2D) echo which subsequently was diagnosed as a case of RPA to LA fistula. He underwent successful trans- catheter closure of the fistula by duct occlude device.
