Scimitar syndrome is a rare constellation of congenital conditions pertaining to partial anomalous pulmonary venous return. Radiographically, these anomalous pulmonary veins can resemble a scimitar, and have heterogeneous clinical presentations. We present an unusual case of scimitar syndrome with associated recurrent pneumonia. We will briefly review the literature on scimitar syndrome as well as discuss how a predisposition to recurrent pneumonia may develop in this unusual variant of a rare clinical entity.
