Abstract

We report a case in which a meandering right pulmonary vein connecting to the left atrium is associated with hypoplasia of the right lung, horseshoe lung, abnormal pulmonary lobation, and abnormal branching of the pulmonary arteries. We discuss its relationship to the so-called scimitar variant, and to the scimitar syndrome itself.
