Pentalogy of Fallot (POF) is a form of congenital heart disease having tetralogy of Fallot with an atrial septal defect. It is characterised by right to left intracardiac shunt with a decrease in pulmonary blood flow and the development of arterial hypoxaemia. Arterial hypoxaemia depends on the magnitude of shunting and leads to erythrocytosis which in turn poses a risk of thromboembolism. We report on the anaesthetic management of a rare case of a 4-year-old male child with pentalogy of Fallot for total correction.
