Transposition of great arteries with ventricular septal defect and interruption of aortic arch is a rare malformation. We present a nine-day-old cyanotic male neonate whose echocardiographic assessment revealed transposition of great arteries with ventricular septal defect and interruption of aortic arch. The patient had indirect hyperbilirubinemia and was operated 3 days after admission. Complete repair was performed by a single stage operation with two incisions. With this technique the need for deep hypothermia and total circulatory arrest was abolished.
