A congenital heart disease refers to any anomaly of the heart structure (walls, valves) or to any abnormality of the heart vessels. Undiagnosed congenital heart diseases could lead to severe comorbidities and death. The purpose of our study is to highlight the importance of prenatal care in identifying possible intrauterine cardiac malformations and the necessity of cardiac screening in the first month of life.
