1 Scopus citations


A patient with the scimitar syndrome is presented, followed by a review of the syndrome's features, incidence, presentation, physical signs, methods of diagnosis, and, finally, treatment. The scimitar syndrome most often is diagnosed in adults who are asymptomatic but have a characteristic chest roentgenogram. Knowledge of the syndrome's radiographic feature as well as the proper management is especially important in any setting where mass roentgenogram screening takes place, such as the armed forces.
