Persistance of lung shadow is usually disgnosed and treated as congenital pneumonia. Sometimes clinical status cannot be co-related by the disease. We came across a similar situation where a neonate presented with lung shadow and mild cyanosis since birth due to an uncommon cause and diagnosed as pulmonary arteriovenous malformation. He was treated by percutaneous closure of arteriovenous malformtation.
