Hemodinamically, the patient was asymptomatic and diagnosed accidentally. This combination has not been reported before. The pathological process of the scimitar syndrome is unclear. However, it appears to originate from a
basic developmental disorder of the complete pulmonary bud early in embryogenesis. This rare syndrome with different presentations can occur alone or in combination with cardiac and /or non-cardiac anomalies....
