Abstract

Scimitar syndrome is a type of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connections, in which part or even the entire right lung is typically drained by right pulmonary veins that anomalously drain into the inferior vena cava. The affected lung is often hypoplastic. The severity of clinical signs and symptoms depend on the degree of a left-to-right shunt and the presence of pulmonary defects. We present a 60 year-old women who has been asymptomatic for a long time.
