Abstract

We report a 13-year-old male patient with heterotaxy and polysplenia syndrome associated with hemiazygous continuation of the left-sided vena cava inferior, dilated azygous vein, and large venous ectasia. This is the first report of heterotaxy and polysplenia syndrome associated with this particular venous arrangement.
