INTRODUCTION: Unilateral absence of the pulmonary artery (UAPA) and persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) are very rare vascular anomalies. UAPA results due to a malformation of the sixth ipsilateral aortic arch during embryogenesis1. PLSVC is an embryologic remnant of the left anterior cardinal vein; it drains deoxygenated blood into the right atrium through the coronary sinus2. We describe the case of coexisting UAPA and PLSVC in the absence of other cardiac malformations.
