Both patent ductus arteriosus and postductal coarctation of the aorta are among the most common congenital heart defects. However, it is extremely rare to have both conditions occur simultaneously. In this report, we present an interesting case in which both patent ductus arteriosus and postductal coarctation occur simultaneously. Other aspects such as embryological background, epidemiology, and clinical complications are also discussed.
