A Gerbode -type defect is a ventricular septal defect communicating directly between left ventricle and right atrium. Usually congenital, but rarely is acquired, as a complication of endocarditis. Type I (direct, acquired) -direct shunt through atrioventricular part of membranous septum, Type II (indirect, congenital) - indirect shunt through perimembranous ventricular septal defect (VSD) and a defect in septal tricuspid valve leaflet. Identification of an actual communication is extremely difficult, so careful and meticulous echocardiogram should be done to prevent misinterpretation as pulmonary arterial hypertension. High velocity systolic Doppler flow signal in right atrium can be sometimes mistakably diagnosed as tricuspid regurgitant jet simulating pulmonary arterial hypertension. 10 yrs male child product of nonconsangenious marriage ?chief complaints of 1) Progressive exertional breathlessness, 2) Fever, 3) Dry cough since 2 months History: a) Easy fatiguability, b) Reccurent RTI Similar complaints since childhood On examination: Apex beat ? 5th ICS ? inch lateral to mcl, hyperdynamic Thrill ? systolic very prominent, present all over the parasternal area esp in pulmonary tricuspid, mitral areas, absent over carotids Auscultation: ?
