  • Scimitar syndrome; also known as congenital venolobar syndrome, Halasz syndrome, mirror-image lung syndrome, hypogenetic lung syndrome, and vena cava bronchovascular syndrome, is a rare congenital heart defect. It is a variant of a partial anomalous pulmonary venous return that results in a left-to-right shunt, with a characteristic anatomic feature that resembles a backsword or a saber with a cu…
  • [Clinical analysis of scimitar syndrome in 6 pediatric patients]. [Case Reports]
    Zhonghua Er Ke Za Zhi 2019; 57(9):705-709Yang J, Ding WW, … Jin M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Isolated SS can easily miss diagnosis due to mild clinical symptoms. Patients with complicated malformations can benefit from combination therapy. SS associated with severe pulmonary hypertension can lead to early death. Therefore, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can improve the prognosis of patients.
  • Scimitar sign in the absence of anomalous pulmonary venous drainage: a case report. [Journal Article]
    Eur Heart J Case Rep 2019; 3(2)Manso PH, Moreira VM, Aiello VD
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although the patient had several typical alterations of the scimitar syndrome, the pulmonary venous connection was normal, and the scimitar sign was due to an aorto-collateral vessel. It might be difficult to describe venous pulmonary connections on the basis of echocardiography, so an angio CT scan proved to be a valuable tool in this scenario.
  • Horseshoe lung associated with scimitar syndrome. [Journal Article]
    BMJ Case Rep 2019; 12(8)Gonen KA, Canitez Y, … Yazici Z
  • Horseshoe lung is a rare congenital anomaly and mostly accompanied by scimitar syndrome. Most aspects of this complex anomaly can be demonstrated via multidetector CT (MDCT). We present two baby girls who had horseshoe lung associated with right lung hypoplasia and scimitar vein. The chest roentgenograms showed displacement of the heart and mediastinum to the right with smaller right lung. Echoca…
  • Developmental lung anomalies in adults: A pictorial review. [Review]
    Respir Med 2019; 155:86-96Cherian SV, Kumar A, … Restrepo CS
  • Developmental lung anomalies represent a heterogeneous group of diverse, yet related abnormalities that involve the lung parenchyma, pulmonary vasculature or a combination of both-which usually present prenatally and in early childhood. However, a substantial number of cases go unnoticed during childhood and present either incidentally or with recurrent respiratory infections progressing into adu…
