An 18-month-old boy, referred because of an infection of the airways, was found to have a right-sided heart, a hypoplastic right lung, absence of the right pulmonary artery, and persistence of the hepatic venous plexus. The benign association of this unusual variant of the scimitar syndrome and persistence of the hepatic venous plexus needs to be recognised in order to avoid extensive investigations and surgery involving the inferior caval vein.
