We report a rare association of common arterial trunk with left pulmonary artery sling and highlight the importance of cross-sectional imaging in complex congenital cardiac lesions. The patient was antenatally diagnosed with common arterial trunk and underwent surgical repair in the neonatal period. At the age of 20 months, the patient presented with respiratory symptoms and increased right ventricular pressure. Multislice computed tomography demonstrated a pulmonary sling with compression of the distal trachea. Surgical correction of the pulmonary sling and change of the right ventricular to pulmonary artery conduit to a bigger size was performed.
