Most patients with total anomalous pulmonary venous connection have a set pattern of pulmonary venous drainage and predictable sites of obstruction. However, uncommon variations do exist and delineating the entire course is more important than just knowing the site of drainage. Azygos vein involvement in the circuit is nearly always associated with a complicated course, as was seen in our patient. This report reviews the drainage patterns when azygos vein forms a part of the circuit.
