Abstract

Turner syndrome is known to be associated with significant cardiovascular abnormalities in 23-45%. Scimitar syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by anomalous connection of the pulmonary veins to the inferior vena cava. It represents 3-5% of all partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR). We report a rare case of Scimitar syndrome in a child with Turner Syndrome.
