Scimitar syndrome is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly, which is characterized by anomalous right pulmonary venous return to the inferior vena cava. In this article, we report a six-month-old girl with the diagnosis of Scimitar syndrome associated with ventricular septal defect, left pulmonary venous stenosis and severe pulmonary hypertension. The patient underwent a successful surgical treatment of all pathologies at a single session.
