Systemic Venous Anomalies and Partial Heterotaxia With Normal Heart

Systemic Venous Anomalies and Partial Heterotaxia With Normal Heart Abstract A case of infrahepatic interruption of inferior vena cava with hemiazygos continuation into a persistent left superior vena cava and partial visceral heterotaxia in association with an otherwise normal heart is presented. The peculiarity of this rare lesion without cardiac malformation and the possible explanation for it are discussed. The clinical significance of systemic venous anomalies is discussed. References 1.
