A rare case of total anomalous drainage of a right superior vena cava to the left atrium is presented. The patient had an intact atrial septum and presented with cyanosis and a history of an earlier brain abscess. Complete repair was performed using a venoatrial shunt and without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass.
