Scimitar Syndrome is a rare congenital disorder that is characterised by an anomalous connection of the pulmonary vein with the inferior vena cava. The other components of the syndrome include hypoplasia of the right lung, hypoplasia of the right pulmonary artery, pulmonary sequestration, dextrocardia, atrial septal defect (ASD). A 36 years old woman suffering from weakness and shortness of breath was admitted in our clinic. It has been learned that the patient has been referred to the hospital with coughing and shortness of breath several times since childhood. Physical examination was normal. The chest radiograh demonstrated increased opacity along the right paracardiac area. Computed tomography angiography (CT angiography) was evaluated. It was detected that the right pulmonary veins drained in to the inferior vena cava named as Scimitar Syndrome. This case was presented with the review of literature.
