Abstract: An extremely rare diverticulum arising from both ventricles at the caudal end of the intraventricular septum was diagnosed in a 2.9 kg infant. The diverticulum was removed successfully while a coexisting ventricular septal defect was left open for further management. The types and complications of such diverticula are described and the need for early surgical intervention is stressed.

“…2 Although repair of isolated ventricular diverticulum has been described, surgical repair of biventricular diverticulum is uncommon. 3 Balderrabano et al reported the largest case series to date, a 40-year experience with pentalogy of Cantrell, with only one case known to have had biventricular diverticula. 4 In this case report, we describe the treatment of a 17-month-old patient with pentalogy of Cantrell, biventricular diverticula, and omphalocele.…”
