Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection associated wit
Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by the failure of fusion of embryologic pulmonary venous system with left atrium.

A 45-year-old male patient with PAPVC who was hospitalized because of mild hemoptysis. Images showed the anomalous vein originated from the left upper pulmonary vein and flowed into the left brachiocephalic vein. No other underlying causes for hemoptysis were detected. After multi-disciplinary discussion, the patient was diagnosed as PAPVC of left upper pulmonary vein draining into the left brachiocephalic vein with intact atrial septum.

The patient had an uneventful postoperative hospital course and was followed up for nearly 2 years without recurrence of hemoptysis.
