Abstract:

Scimitar syndrome or congenital pulmonary venolobar syndrome, is a rare congenital cardiovascular defect charactarized by anomalous venous return from the right lung (to the systemic venous drainage, rather than directly to the left atrium). This anomalous pulmonary venous return can be either partial (PAPVR) or total (TAPVR). The syndrome associated with PAPVR is more commonly known as Scimitar syndrome after the curvilinear pattern created on a chest radiograph by the pulmonary veins that drain to the inferior vena cava. Considering its rareness we are reporting scimitar syndrome in middle aged female patient with long standing dyspnea and recurrent chest infections without any cardiac anomaly.
