Scimitar syndrome (SS) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by partial or complete anomalous pulmonary venous drainage of the right or left lung into the inferior vena cava. The syndrome is commonly associated with hypoplasia of the right lung, pulmonary sequestration, persistent left superior vena cava, and dextroposition of the heart. We report a rare variant of SS in a 44-year-old man together with a single aortic trunk, as well as a coronary-cameral venous fistula.
