Abstract

We report a rare variation in the pattern of totally anomalous pulmonary venous connection in that two vertical veins drained into the left brachiocephalic vein from a common pulmonary venous confluence. The child had associated right isomerism and functionally univentricular heart. Awareness of this possibility may avoid a reoperation or even death.
