The case of a pregnant with suspicion of a ventricular septate defect according to ultrasound carried out during the second trimester of pregnancy is reported confirming the presence of a peri-membranous intraventricular communication with muscular lengthening and a malalignment of interventricular septum leading to a decrease in the size of outlet tract from the left ventricle without obstruction. In the postnatal study it was evidenced the marked pathology, as well as the presence of a interauricular communication and persistence of arterial conduct. Illustrations used are in correspondence with the images taped in the "William Soler" Children Heart Center and in its pathological anatomy service.
