Infants with congenital heart disease and chronic lung disease are at risk for development of systemic-to-pulmonary collateral arteries (SPCA). This study characterizes associated clinical findings in 20 premature infants without CHD who were diagnosed as having SPCA with echocardiography. SPCA can occur in premature infants without chronic lung disease and may represent a transient phenomenon.
