We report a 10-day-old newborn, weighing 2.9 kg with an interrupted left aortic arch type B, a large subarterial ventricular septal defect and a right ductus connecting the right pulmonary artery to an isolated right subclavian artery. The patient underwent successful total surgical repair and the isolated right subclavian artery was ligated. He was discharged from hospital without complication and maintains excellent perfusion to the right arm via collaterals.
