Four cases of atypical patent ductus arteriosus are presented. All of them had history of frequent upper respiratory infection and exertional dyspnea since infancy. Systolic murmurs were audible on the pulmanic area. On radiologic examination, heart was markedly enlarged, pulmonary segment was prominent and pulmonary vascular markings were increased at the proximal part. E.K.G. findings revealed high voltage of QRS complex on the anterior precordial leads suggesting biventricular hypertrophy Cardiac catheterzation revealed marked pulmonary hypertension and left to right shunt at the pulmonary artery. In three cases, catheter could be passed the patent ductus arteriosus into the aorta A brief review of literature was made.
