Abstract

The clinial, radiologic, hemodynamic and angiocardiographic features of a very rare entity, the horseshoe lung, associated with heart malposition and anomalies of the venous and arterial pulmonary vessel, are reported. The horseshoe lung is a pulmonary malformation which essentially consists of partial fusion of the lungs behind the pericardial cavity. Only 2 cases have been previously reported in the literature and in both the diagnosis was made in a living patient. The essential distinctive characteristic are described.
