Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Scimitar syndrome is characterized by anomalous pulmonary venous drainage of a part or the whole of the right lung into the inferior vena cava (IVC). It is extremely uncommon in scimitar syndrome for the pulmonary veins to drain anomalously to a site other than the IVC. The following case report describes an otherwise classical scimitar syndrome with anomalous drainage of the right lung cephalad into the right atrium near its junction with the superior vena cava.
