© The Author(s), 2022. Published by Cambridge University Press.Scimitar syndrome is a congenital anomaly in which some or all of right pulmonary veins drain into inferior caval vein. It is associated with anomalous systemic arteries arising from descending aorta supplying to right lung. Transcatheter embolisation of this artery prevents complications. We present a 2.5-year-old girl in which anomalous artery was embolised using Amplatzer PiccoloTM Occluder, for first time.
