We report a case of an anomalous unilateral single right pulmonary vein resembling a scimitar sign on chest X-ray. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature describing this interesting rare anomaly that is often confused with arteriovenous malformation and hypogenetic lung syndrome (scimitar syndrome). This report briefly discusses the embryology of the pulmonary veins, classification of the pulmonary venous anomalies, and various causes of scimitar sign.
