A 15-day-old late preterm female baby weighing 2.6 kg was brought to the emergency room with hypoxic respiratory failure. Bedside echocardiography demonstrated reversal of flow in the descending aorta. Computed tomography angiography was performed and showed arteriovenous fistula between brachiocephalic artery and beginning of superior vena cava. Parents were counseled about the embolization of fistula. Parents refused to consent for the procedure and the baby was discharged against the medical advice.
