PMID:  18290895     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Scimitar syndrome is a rare and complex congenital anomaly, which is characterized by the image of a Turkish sword on the chest X-ray. Very few cases in adults are reported in the literature. The long-term results of scimitar syndrome after surgical correction remain disappointing. We report an adult patient with scimitar syndrome undergoing surgery at our center.
