Thrombotic occlusion of the aortic arch in the neonate is a rare lesion for which successful operative repair with survival beyond the immediate postoperative period has not been previously reported. We report a case in which surgical repair of this lesion with survival was achieved and discuss the diagnostic and technical aspects of management of aortic arch thrombosis in the neonate.
