36 Possible Causes for Scimitar Sign

  • Scimitar Syndrome

    However, a computed tomography of the chest showed this abnormal vascular shadow draining into the left atrium (pseudo-scimitar sign).[jstage.jst.go.jp] The X-ray chest shows the characteristic Scimitar Sign.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The 'scimitar sign' on plain chest radiograph is most commonly attributed to the presence of a scimitar vein, which is a variant of partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lynch Syndrome

    The defect usually takes the form of a sickle shaped or crescent shaped deformity of the sacrum, the hemisacrum or so-called scimitar sign (75% in our series).[jmg.bmj.com] A bifid sacrum with a central defect was present in 22% and 27 Figure 1 Pelvic x ray of adult female showing a scimitar sacrum with a right sided defect.[jmg.bmj.com]

  • Atrial Septal Defect

  • Transposition of the Great Vessels

    Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return and Scimitar Sign The scimitar sign is produced by an anomalous pulmonary vein that drains any or all of the lobes of the right lung[doi.org] The scimitar sign.

    […] a scimitar sign on chest X-ray.[astrocyte.in] Radiographs may reveal signs of consolidation.[emedicine.medscape.com] sign was originally thought to be diagnostic of scimitar syndrome; [5] however, a false positive scimitar sign (pseudoscimitar sign) is a rare possibility.[astrocyte.in]

  • Absence of Innominate Vein

    Chest roentgenography showed dextroversion, elevated right dome of diaphragm, plethoric lung fields and the ‘scimitarsign parallel to the right cardiac border (Fig. 1a )[icvts.oxfordjournals.org]
