Congenital heart disease is the most common congenital disorder in newborns. There have been many case reports on this topic in the vast medical literature, describing a variety of unusual or novel clinical cases and providing many new ideas in this field.

Our goal is to set up a special issue but not feature classic case reports, although these are rare and essential to the literature. We are in the process of creating a particular issue dedicated to publishing cases that highlight the clinical peculiarities of congenital heart disease. These clinical peculiarities make the diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart disease more challenging,to let it become a nightmare for complex therapeutic management.

The following submissions will be accepted for this special issue: interesting, attractive, rare image cases with high quality, aesthetical images; well-described case reports with ultra-high clinical and therapeutic management difficulty. The conclusions must include the description of the resolution of the case.
