We present a male newborn referred to pediatric cardiology due to a heart murmur, whose echocardiographic evaluation showed an intrahepatic inferior vena cava interruption with azygos continuation and two small mesoseptal ventricular septal defects. Although mainly incidental, the early diagnosis of interrupted inferior vena cava can be crucial to avoid complications of invasive vascular procedures.

Key words: Inferior vena cava anomalies, ventricular septal defect, echocardiogram, newborn
