Perriyanayaki @ Barani G and Adaikappan M

Coarctation of aorta is a constriction of aortic arch that ranges from a discrete shelf like lesion within the lumen to a segmental narrowing of a portion of the arch. The characteristic triad of Dandy-Walker malformation includes complete or partial agenesis of the vermis, cystic dilatation of the fourth ventricle and an enlarged posterior fossa with upward displacement of lateral sinuses, tentorium, and torcularherophili. Here we report a case of coarctation of aorta associated with Dandy walker anomaly diagnosed prenatally with antenatal ultrasound and fetal echocardiography.
