Abstract: Klippel-Feil syndrome is a skeletal disorder characterised by low hairline and a short neck due to abnormal fusion of two or more cervical vertebrae. Although congenital heart and lung defects are infrequent, some abnormalities such as cor triatriatum, coarctation of the aorta, total anomalous pulmonary venous connection, or lung agenesis have been reported. The challenge of recognising Klippel-Feil syndrome lies in the fact that there is an association of this syndrome with other significant conditions such as skeletal, genitourinary, neurological, ear, and some cardiac defects. We report a Klippel-Feil syndrome type III 14-year-old patient with a levo-looped transposition of the great arteries. In addition, the patient had agenesis of the left upper-lung lobe.
