    Anomalous left brachiocephalic vein (ALBCV) is a rare condition of the major thoracic veins. It is usually associated with a congenital cardiac anomaly. Most reports on ALBCV are on aberrant left BCV, and there are few reports on double left BCV. Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is...

    Two examples of partial anomalous drainage of the pulmonary vein were detected at dissection. The first case was found in a 70-year-old female Japanese. An aberrant vein, approximately 6�mm in diameter, that derived from the upper lobe of the right lung was observed to drain into the...

    Duplication of the superior vena cava (SVC), associated with an aberrant left hepatic vein (LHV), was found in one of the 58 dissected specimens. The right SVC virtually showed a typical appearance. The persistent left SVC, which drained into the right atrium via the enlarged coronary sinus, was...

    We report an extremely rare case of Synchronous primary intrapulmonary and mediastinal thymoma in a Chinese patient. We describe the histological and radiological findings, which support the possibility of multicentric thymoma. Resection of the mass in the left anterior superior mediastinum and...

    During routine dissection of the thoracic region of a 45-year-old male cadaver, the superior vena cava was found to be absent on the right side. The right brachiocephalic vein was passing from right to left to join the left brachiocephalic vein to form the left superior vena cava. The azygos...

    Anomalous retroesophageal left brachiocephalic vein is a very rare anomaly of the brachiocephalic vein. At the time of writing only one case had been reported worldwide. The purpose of this study was to report four cases of anomalous retroesophageal left brachiocephalic vein and to evaluate the...
