The echocardiogram can accurately identify and assess ventricular size and wall motion, septal thickness and motion, valvular movements and left ventricular outflow tract dimensions. The ability to identify anatomic relationships, dimensions and movements has established the echocardiogram as a valuable diagnostic modality in transposition of the great vessels, tetralogy of Fallot, single ventricle, idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis, atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, membranous subaortic stenosis, and other less common anatomic variants. The purpose of this report is to describe an echocardiogram obtained from a five year old boy with congenital atrioventricular canal. The diagnosis was proved at autopsy.
