Truncus arteriosus (TA) is a relatively uncommon cyanotic congenital cardiac anomaly accounting for 1.3% of all congenital cardiac malformations. TA associated with an ascending aortic aneurysm is an extremely rare congenital cardiovascular abnormality. A 15-year-old male presented with shortness of breath and cough for 2 weeks. Radiological examinations showed that the ascending aorta and main pulmonary arteries originate from a single truncus with ascending aortic aneurysm. TA has a poor prognosis if remain unrepaired and surgical intervention is necessary to avoid severe pulmonary vascular occlusive disease.
