Left parasternal systolic ejection murmur was detected in the physical examination of a 24-year-old woman with dyspnea. Transthoracic echocardiography and cineangiography revealed infundibular, valvular pulmonary stenosis and a small subaortic ventricular septal defect. Infundibular resection, transannular pericardial patch replacement and pulmonary valve reconstruction with pericardium were performed. New pulmonary valve was evaluated with multislice computed tomography.
