In a child with tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary atresia, and right aortic arch, the left subclavian artery arose from an unusually low position, and was initially misinterpreted as a systemic pulmonary collateral. This anomaly probably resulted from a 'lag' in embryological migration of the left subclavian artery onto the aortic arch.
