The article discusses the occurrence of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) due to fetal cardiac anomalies. It states that aortic stenosis detected at 18 to 20 weeks may progress to classical hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Several manifestations of HLHS including cyanosis, weak peripheral pulses, and cardiomegaly are presented.
