This malformation is commonly manifested clinically by intense cyanosis, cardiac failure, and death in the neonatal period. Whereas the diagnosis and management of pulmonary stenosis in older children and adults is well established, there are relatively few published data relating to atresia or severe stenosis in infants having neonatal difficulties. In 1951, Johnson and Johnson1 reported 5 patients with pulmonary stenosis who died between 3 and 19 months of age.
