    Two patients with isolated atresia of the pulmonary veins are described. One patient presented with haemoptysis and the other with recurrent unilateral chest infections. The diagnosis was confirmed in both instances by cardiac catheterisation and pulmonary angiography. One patient died one year after the diagnosis was made and the second child has been stable during a follow up period of three years.
