Summary– Aortopulmonary window is a rare anomaly, a communication between the ascending aorta and the main pulmonary artery. Prognosis in the absence of correction is poor, with mortality of around 40% in the first year of life. A case of aortopulmonary window without pulmonary vascular disease in adulthood is described in the present report.

Keywords: Aortopulmonary window, vascular diseases.
