Abstract

An elderly man with pulmonary vein varix and atrial fibrillation is described. The diagnosis of pulmonary varix, a localized dilatation of pulmonary vein, was made by transesophageal echocardiography. The patient had chronic atrial fibrillation, and transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated thrombus in the pulmonary varix. In patients with atrial fibrillation, pulmonary varix may be an unusual site for thrombus formation.
