We present multimodality imaging of a meandering right pulmonary vein in a 29-year-old female patient. It was associated with right retrocaval ureter causing hydronephrosis and stone formation, vertebral fusion anomalies and corrected cardiac anomalies (patent ductus arteriosus and ventricular septal defect). To the best of our knowledge, only a few meandering right pulmonary vein have been presented in the literature until now and this is the first reported case that is associated with retrocaval ureter and vertebral fusion anomalies.
